Kyle Walker: Held his hands up

England defender Kyle Walker has admitted to "poor judgement" after photographs emerged of him taking a legal high on a night out in Sheffield.

The Sunday Mirror stated the Tottenham right-back had inhaled nitrous oxide when out with friends over the summer, alongside photographs of Walker breathing out of a black balloon.

The 23-year-old, who played for England against Moldova on Friday and is in the squad to face Ukraine on Tuesday, wrote on his official Twitter page: "Apologies for not commenting sooner on a story about me today. I've been training and am focused on Tuesday's game for England.

"Now I know the health risks, it was poor judgement on my part.

"I won't be doing this again and hope that no one else is influenced into putting their health at risk by my actions."

Walker was named as the PFA's Young Player of the Year in 2012 and has won seven caps for England since making his debut against Spain in 2011.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.

Sterling Case For Leaving 'Bigger' Club

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
