John Stones Names 'Scary' Off-Field Trait That Manchester City's Kyle Walker Has

John Stones has revealed what he first told Kyle Walker when the England international arrived at Manchester City from Tottenham in the summer of 2017, speaking during a new interview this week.

Stones - who played yet another integral role in Manchester City's most recent Premier League title success - starred alongside Kyle Walker in Pep Guardiola's defensive line, significantly aiding the club in winning their fourth English top-flight crown of the last five seasons.

The former Everton centre-back is a huge admirer of his England and Manchester City teammate, and made no secret of such a fact when discussing the abilities of the former White Hart Lane full-back this week.

Speaking at the launch of Sure’s new 72 Hour Nonstop Protection Antiperspirant, John Stones said of Kyle Walker, "He's incredible. I told him from the first time that he stepped foot in the building."

"I don't think he realises maybe his qualities and how good he actually is which is scary I think, it’s a bit of a scary thought but he's been so vital to us as a team. And what he brings to us as well on and off the pitch is incredible."

The 28 year-old centre-back was also asked for his thoughts on the impact of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, who will be entering his seventh season at the club when the 2022/23 campaign starts in August.

Stones explained, "I think I said it from the first few years his record before he even came here and his desire and his passion for the game has kind of spread, and he's made a big impact on us as players. So we've got that kind of drive and willingness now to win and it spreads like wildfire."

John Stones is entering a huge season in his professional football career, with huge titles for both club and country on the horizon.

Manchester City will be looking to retain their Premier League title for the second consecutive season, which would also mark their fifth under Pep Guardiola, while the UEFA Champions League also remains a primary objective for everyone concerned at the Etihad Stadium.

On the international front, Stones is highly likely to be a part of the travelling England contingent heading to Qatar for the 2022 World Cup, which gets underway midway through the season in late November.
