Kyle Walker promises to be ready for UCL final

England and Man City right back Kyle Walker says he will be ready for the Uefa Champions league final in Istanbul on Saturday.

Walker missed out on City’s first training session on Tuesday morning as the Sky Blues prepare for their Uefa Champions league final against Inter Milan.

The 33-year-old looked in discomfort as he was substituted in the final minute of City’s FA Cup final triumph over Manchester United at Wembley.

“I’m fine, I’m just getting old,” he told Sky Sports News. “I’m completely fine, it’s just an extra day of recovery.

“I’ve played a lot of minutes over the last number of weeks so the manager said, ‘Just stay inside and come Saturday you will be raring to go’.

“I’m fine, the minutes that I’ve played when everyone else was injured, I was there digging my heels in and getting through it. I won’t be missing the Champions League final for anything.”
