Kevin de Bruyne has defended Kyle Waker after Roy Keane called the Manchester City defender “an idiot”.
The comments came after Werker was awarded a penalty in the 1-1 Premier League draw against Liverpool. Keane demonstrates his long-held belief that the right is a responsibility.
The 30-year-old recently scored a century in sports for Pep Guardiola’s men, which he signed from Tottenham in 2017.
And City Teammate De Bryan has been behind Kane’s claims for some time.
De Bruyne said in a report, “I believe from the moment Kyle joined the team, he has been a consistent performer with us.” The goal.
“He’s never been injured, he’s always playing. He is reliable and he is a really good defender. I think the job he does is a really good job.
“It’s different when you compare each situation. For example, you can’t compare what Trent does [Alexander-Arnold] At Liverpool. Trent is a more aggressive player and Kyle is going to play a different role for us, but he does it really well and there’s a reason he’s been playing at this level for so many years for all these teams. That means it’s been really good.
“Well, what Roy Keane says… he’s a different man and everyone knows that. But, well, that’s his opinion and he’ll take it to the chin. He will be fine with it. ”
Southgate also pays back the tax
Walker has also been defended by England boss Gareth Southgate, who thinks Keane’s comments crossed the line.
“I think he is playing very well. Observations and analysis are OK, I think personal criticism is so low. I think we should be careful about that, “said Southgate.
“I am just happy with what he is doing. He plays every game for his club because the manager trusts him and thinks he needs him. So if he’s doing it for Pep, it’s a sign of quality. “
Walker was left out of the match-day squad for England’s recent 0-0 win over the Republic of Ireland with the three Lions set to face Belgium in the Nations League on Sunday.
