Pep confirms Walker will remain captain. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Kyle Walker will remain as Manchester City captain despite reports of problems with his personal life.
The England right-back apologized to his family on Monday after cheating on his wife.
The 33-year-old was voted captain by his team-mates after Ilkay Gundogan’s move to Barcelona last summer.
Asked if Walker would continue as club captain, Guardiola replied: “Of course, because it’s the team’s decision, not mine.”
“I support him and his family. And will not say a single word about the players’ personal problems.”
Walker has won 14 major trophies, including five Premier League titles, since joining City in 2017.

Kyle had a fling with Lauryn in July 2019, with the model and influencer giving birth to her first child with the England star, Kairo, in April 2020. The Man City defender shares three, soon-to-be four children with his wife Annie.
