Manchester City hopeful for key defender returns against Real Madrid




Manchester City remains optimistic about the potential return of defender Kyle Walker for their upcoming UEFA Champions League quarter-final clash against Real Madrid.

Despite Walker’s absence from recent matches due to a hamstring injury, City is hopeful that he may recover in time to face Real Madrid.

Manager Pep Guardiola sees Walker’s presence as crucial in neutralizing the threat posed by Real Madrid winger Vinicius Jr.


However, the decision ultimately rests with Walker and the club’s medical team, who will assess his fitness ahead of the crucial fixture.

While Walker’s participation in the match against Crystal Palace remains unlikely, there’s a glimmer of hope for his involvement in the Champions League tie.

Nevertheless, Guardiola may consider alternative options, such as 19-year-old Rico Lewis, if Walker is unavailable.


Real Madrid, on the other hand, might find relief in Walker’s potential absence, as it would give Vinicius Jr. more freedom to exploit the left flank.

Despite the potential competition against a young substitute, Vinicius expressed sympathy for Walker, acknowledging his quality as one of the best defenders in the world.
