Man City Full-Back Kyle Walker Irks Spurs Fans After Trying to Reach Out to His Old Club

Publish date:

Kyle Walker made the mistake of trying to reach out to his old club Tottenham on social media - and it definitely didn't go down well with the fans.

The England international came up against his old club for the first time since his £50m move to the Etihad as the sides met in Nashville in the International Champions Cup pre-season competition.

Spurs slipped to 3-0 defeat courtesy of goals from John Stones, Raheem Sterling and Brahim Diaz, and it was a sweet victory for Walker especially given how he only joined City from Spurs a matter of weeks ago.

His jubilant mood prompted him to reach out to his old club via Twitter, and he said: "Really enjoyed the tour with @ManCity! It was strange to play against the boys last night but great to see everyone at @spursofficial again!"

As could be predicted by just about anybody, the majority of responses to the message were extremely negative - a large proportion coming in from angry Spurs supporters who condemned him for chasing a greater pay cheque as his motive for leaving their club.

Walker only recently could be seen on Instagram pledging his loyalty to Spurs by chanting 'Tottenham till I die' which made his decision to try and reach out all the more annoying for the fans.
