Toby 'fantastic for us' - Kyle

Posted on 24 April 2016  - 17:15

Kyle Walker has paid tribute to the influence of Toby Alderweireld in our defensive unit.


Named in the PFA’s Team of the Season alongside Danny Rose, Dele Alli and Harry Kane, Toby has played every minute of our 34 matches so far in the Premier League as we’ve conceded just 25 goals.

“Toby has been fantastic for us,” said Kyle, who has started 29 of the 34. “He’s got great feet, hits those diagonal passes left and right and reads the game so well.

“For me, that’s one of the keys of the season, our defensive strength and clean sheets. Toby has been a great addition.

“We’re a unit together, we all complement each other and that’s what makes it so good.

“Toby is a great person off the pitch as well. Of course, the Belgian lads helped him settle in to start with but now he gels with everyone, there are no divides in that dressing room.”
