Nevertheless, it sounds as though Walker is simply taking precautions despite the initial fear.
According to Sky Sports, the Manchester City No. 2 is continuing his personal recuperation from Sunday’s 1-0 loss to Arsenal by following a customized training schedule.
Walker most definitely doesn’t act his age when playing.
Footballers in their thirties, however, need to take even better care of their bodies to compete at the greatest level for both their club and country because time does not wait for anyone.
If all goes according to plan on Tuesday, Walker should be able to participate in full training with the Three Lions starting tomorrow.
Kyle Walker will hopefully take Friday off for Manchester City.
England plays Australia in a friendly on Friday before taking on Italy on Tuesday in a EURO 2024 qualifier.
Guardiola would undoubtedly be hoping that Gareth Southgate doesn’t utilize Walker against the Australians given that there is no stake in the game.
All eight of Manchester City’s Premier League games this season, in addition to their two UEFA Champions League games, have been started by the £53 million player.
In addition, the Sheffield-born defender performs a variety of unusual duties for Guardiola, such as the inverted full-back position, which necessitates much running.
Walker may therefore benefit from a short break, so hopefully Southgate recognizes this and decides to bench him for the friendly against Australia.
Walker playing and suffering an injury would make Guardiola furious.
