Kyle Walker, a defender for Manchester City, has shared his strategy for stopping Real Madrid winger Vinicius Jr. during their Champions League semifinal match.
Walker and Vinicius squared off in the first leg, which ended 1-1 in Spain.
The Brazilian international, however, was unable to motivate Madrid in the second leg at the Etihad, where they were hammered 4-0.
Walker, speaking to BT Sport on how he handled Vinicius Jr, said:
“You’ve got to have a bit of arrogance like the attackers do, I believe in my pace and I go toe to toe with them.
“I believe I am bigger than him and can use my physical dominance. He’s fantastic but you have to use your strengths.
“I just made it as difficult as possible for him.”
