Walker "incredible" despite England snub says Guardiola

Pep Guardiola praises defender Kyle Walker ahead of Manchester City's Premier League match with Wolves.

SHOWS: MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, UK (OCTOBER 4, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY MANAHER, PEP GUARDIOLA, ON KYLE WALKER'S ENGLAND SQUAD OMISSION, SAYING: "Kyle Walker can do everything.

But the opinion of the manager of the national team Gareth (Southgate).

So, I'm not here to (judge), he made a selection, he has a huge selection of players to be you know, to select (from).

And he's decided for the last two times and Kyle respects it, I respect it.

Gareth do what he does is for the best for the national team, for England.

So, I said what I said before, it's a big challenge for Kyle to show him (Southgate) day by day, game by game how good he is.

Not because he's in national team, not in national team my opinion change and I think for Gareth neither.

So he remains an incredible fullback." STORY: Kyle Walker remains "an incredible player" in the eyes of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola despite the right back once again being left out of the England squad.

The powerhouse has been a key player in City's two Premier League titles under Guardiola but appears to have slipped down England manager Gareth Southgate's pecking order.

He has been left out of the squad for the second time this season, with Southgate preferring Atletico Madrid's Kieran Trippier and

Class="kln">Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold as his options for this month's England's Euro 2020 qualifiers in the Czech Republic and Bulgaria.

Walker, who has 48 caps for England, also faces stiff competition from Manchester United's Aaron Wan-Bissaka who is not in the squad because of illness.

Guardiola said he respected Southgate's opinion but he was full of praise for Walker on Friday (October 4).

Walker will likely be stationed at right back for Sunday's (October 6) Premier League home clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers when City could find themselves eight points adrift of Liverpool by kickoff.
