After cementing his first team spot with superb displays in the 2011/2012 season, Kyle expects nothing but first class performances when he steps onto the pitch.
"I set myself high standards last season and I'm pleased I did, but once you set those standards, if you then fall below them people start to get on your back a little. But I’m the first to have a word with myself and say I 'could do better'," Kyle told Spurs TV in an exclusive interview.
"I’ve played 100 games in two seasons - that's a lot of games - and it took a while to get in the team. I was patient, got my chance last season and I have to keep doing the things that got me a chance in the first place. I want to win things here.
"If I’ve had a bad game, I’m straight home and it gets to me. I shouldn’t let that happen but I’m passionate and want to win things. I want to play to the best of my ability and anything below means that I’m not happy."
The England full-back played 50 times and took some time out to talk to tottenhamhotspur.com about the pressure he puts on himself to play to the best of his abilities.
