Award shock for Walker
Tottenham defender Kyle Walker has admitted he was surprised to with the PFA's young player of the year award on Sunday night.
Walker believes it is normally front men who pick up the gongs at the end of the season and not defenders like himself but after a stunning season, where he has won his first full international caps, Walker was crowned on Sunday night. The 21-year-old beat team-mate Gareth Bale, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Danny Welbeck, Sergio Aguero and Daniel Sturridge to the award. He told SkySports: "I was a bit surprised because defenders don't normally get these awards and get the limelight as much as the centre-forwards. "If you look at the people I was in with then it is a great honour to get the award and hopefully there is more to come. "It is always an honour to be selected by the people you play against and, like I say, hopefully I can get a few more of these and some medals with Tottenham along the way."
