On-loan defender Kyle Walker-Peters has told talkSPORT that he needs to add goals to his game to improve as a modern-day full-back.
The 23-year-old feels that attacking output is imperative to the position these days and wants to follow in the footsteps of idol Dani Alves.
“I’ve got a lot of assists. What I need to add to my game now is the goals.” ⚽️— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) May 28, 2020

That’s all well and good but before he adds goals to his game he needs to become a stronger defender if he wants to make it at Spurs.
KWP has been exposed as too lightweight and weak in one-on-one situations when he has had his rare first-team opportunities.
It’s not his attacking game I’d have concerns about, and I’d imagine Jose Mourinho thinks the same way about the Southampton loanee.
