Kyle Walker: This is the most important man at Tottenham
By Dominic Toner
Tottenham defender Kyle Walker believes that Mauricio Pochettino has given the club every chance of winning silverware.
The 26-year-old is one of the players who has benefited hugely under the Argentinian boss and he is now a part of a formidable defence.
Pochettino moved to White Hart Lane in 2014 to become Spurs manager after leaving his role with Southampton.
The 44-year-old has become a hug favourite with the club’s supporters and has managed to build a strong side, with a young English core of Walker, Danny Rose, Harry Kane, Eric Dier and Dele Alli at the heart of it.
Walker believes that Pochettino has put Spurs in a great position and it’s now down to the players to perform on a regular basis.

“He has come in and put his own stamp on everything and sometimes, somethings you don’t agree with, but he always seems to prove you wrong,” Walker said, as quoted by Sky Sports’ website. “We’re all hungry to achieve what he believes in.
“We’ve got everything in place, but it’s down to us as players and obviously the coaching staff to go and deliver week in week out and hopefully we can go win something.”
