It was quite a night for Manchester City’s goalkeepers at the San Siro, and we’re not just talking about Ederson and Claudio Bravo. Pep Guardiola’s go-to right-back took his place between the sticks with 10 minutes to spare – yes, you read that right!
An injury blow to Ederson, a red card for Claudio Bravo and a clean sheet for Kyle Walker – no, not at right-back, but between the sticks! It’s fair to say the City players themselves found this as humorous as we did!
Raheem Sterling, Benjamin Mendy, Leroy Sané – just a few players to react on social media following a night Kyle Walker will certainly never forget!
“This colour fits you bro!”
Leroy Sane had his say on Walker’s interesting combination of kit, as the full-back repped some striking colours under the Italian lights!
Raheem Sterling certainly found the funny side to Walker’s save from the free-kick, which the England right-back almost spilled into the path of an onrushing Atalanta player.
Benjamin Mendy seemed to be one of the few players to praise Kyle Walker’s efforts in goal at the San Siro, thanking the full-back for his contribution in an interview with BT Sport!
We all knew Mendy couldn’t take the whole situation too seriously, and shortly after joined the bandwagon of recognising the save in a less serious manner…
“Kyle did very well!”
Joao Cancelo was quick to praise his fellow right-back, speaking to Sky Italia after the game!
