Darren Bent has been speaking about Manchester City defender Kyle Walker – and said that the full-back doesn’t have a single weakness in his game.

Walker has made a great start to the new season.

At one stage it looked as though he could move on, with Bayern Munich especially interested in him in the summer.

But the 33-year-old ended up staying after a key intervention from Pep Guardiola.

It is now expected that Walker – who scored his first England at the weekend against Ukraine – will sign a new contract.

And Walker has started every game so far for City, and worn the captain’s armband in the absence of Kevin De Bruyne.

Last night, Walker came in for strong praise from Bent on talkSPORT…

Darren Bent hails Kyle Walker and believes the Man City defender doesn’t have any weaknesses

Last night, Bent and Andy Goldstein were talking about Walker.

The pair were discussing who they felt was the greatest Premier League right-back of all-time.

United supporter Goldstein was obviously vouching for Gary Neville.

But Bent was firmly in Walker’s corner, saying of him: “Kyle Walker… he hasn’t got any weaknesses. One thing about Gary – Gary’s quick. But Kyle was a different animal. He was quite quick wasn’t he Gaz? But he wasn’t that quick, he wasn’t Walker quick.”

Walker is a strong shout for best right-back ever

It is a very interesting debate.

Neville won a lot of trophies at United and was undoubtedly a top-class player in his day.

But there is now a very strong case for £160,000-a-week star Walker being the greatest right-back in Premier League history.

Nobody comes close to him physically. But he has also come a very long way technically and tactically.

Bent probably goes a bit far to say he doesn’t have any weaknesses. He can sometimes overthink situations and choose the wrong option, as we saw against Sheffield United recently.

But by and large, Walker is an amazing footballer.
