Spurs transfer news: Kyle Walker-Peters opens up on the opening day win
The opening day win against Aston Villa was by no means an easy one given that we were trailing the game for a good period of time.
It took a bit of a Tanguy Ndombele brilliance for the game to open up and luckily, Harry Kane was there to finish things off safely. It was certainly a huge relief to start the Premier League season with a win, especially at home.
One position in the team that is weak right now is right-back as we sold Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid. We have only two options at right-back – Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters.
The latter got to start the game for us and it looks like this could be a breakthrough season for him given the current scenario.
The youngster is one of our own, having come through the club’s academy ranks. Having been frustrated for over an hour by a dogged and resilient Villa outfit, we finally found the lead but as the stadium erupted, Kyle Walker-Peters slumped to the turf in a heap.
Here’s what Walker-Peters had to say about the moment (h/t Tottenhamhotspur.com).
“I was just thinking about how much I love Harry (Kane)!”
“Honestly, I could have cried on the pitch. It was that sort of emotion as the goal went in.”
“When that goal goes in, you just think about everything you have been through to get here; everything I have been through on my journey to getting into the first-team and finally getting more and more opportunities as the gaffer is showing that trust in me. “
“And, growing up in Tottenham, I just love the Club, so those moments mean just that little bit extra. You can’t control these emotions, it just happens. Everything just builds up in you – especially in that game.”
Given Walker-Peter’s journey at the club so far, the emotion is understandable. It is always so nice to see a youngster make his way through the club’s ranks and establish himself as a first-teamer.
