England right back, Kyle Walker has said he joined Manchester City from Tottenham Hotspur to win trophies.

Walker, who was signed by City for £50 million, according to British media reports, said he was happy to work with former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss, Pep Guardiola.

The 27-year-old is set to face his former team-mates on July 29 when City meet Spurs in a pre-season friendly in Nashville.

“I am hoping with the world-class players we have here that we will go and lift a trophy, which is what I want to do in my career,” Walker told the BBC.

“I was unfortunate at Tottenham. We made it so close in the last two seasons, it was just that sometimes we were unlucky. Sometimes we just didn’t have that little bit of edge.

“I needed a new challenge. This would have been my ninth season at Tottenham. Sometimes you need to come out of your comfort zone a little bit.”

He added, “The manager was a big thing for me (coming to City). I wanted to come and play under him,”

“He’s worked with Dani Alves and all the top players at Barcelona, plus (Philipp) Lahm at Bayern Munich, that was a big attraction for me.”
