Man City captain Kyle Walker praised for interview after losing FA Cup final to Man United

After Man City lost to Man United in the FA Cup final, Kyle Walker received praise for his behavior.

Kyle Walker, the captain of Manchester City, has received recognition for his response following his team’s Saturday FA Cup final defeat to rival United.

Last weekend, Walker won the Premier League title in his role as captain as City defeated Arsenal to win the league for an unprecedented fourth time in history.

Against United, Pep Guardiola’s team was hoping to win the FA Cup in their second straight meeting at Wembley.

However, thanks to goals from Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo in the first half, the Red Devils emerged victorious for the 13th time in the cup’s history.

The 35-game unbeaten streak for City ended, but Walker gave a positive post-match speech.

The England right-back was measured in his evaluation of the match and congratulated the opposition, despite his altercation with Lisandro Martinez on the field.

In the mixed zone, he told the media: “Congratulations to Manchester United for winning that trophy, it’s been probably not been their best of seasons but hopefully that’s some justification for some of my friends in there that have worked hard and dealt with a lot of stick recently.”

Walker was also questioned about his England teammate Mainoo, who excelled on the big stage, winning Man of the Match.

The 19-year-old is predicted to play in his first tournament for the senior England team at the next European Championship because of his continued impressive play.

“What a talent and the generation of England’s talent coming through is very exciting,” Walker said.

“Hopefully he can take his form he’s shown over this season into the Euros if selected.”

“Fair enough Kyle Walker,” one fan commented in response to Walker’s interview.

Someone else said: “I’m beginning to understand why’s the captain of Manchester City.”

A third voiced their opinion: “Well done, Kyle and the boys from the City. These days, rivalry and respect are greatly lacking.”

One more said, “Speaks very well and is a beast of a defender.”
