While reflecting on his decision to stay at City, Walker acknowledged that his situation could have been drastically different had he opted to join Bayern Munich.

Despite considering a move abroad, he ultimately decided to remain at the Etihad Stadium, where he could continue his footballing career.

Looking back it, the right-back admits that things could have been much different for him as he was close to leaving the club for Bayern Muncih.

He said (quotes via The Telegraph):

“It would have been a lot different because I’d have been at a different club but that was a moment in my personal life that I felt I wanted to move away from England and it was nothing to do with footballing reasons.”

“It was something personal to me where I thought that taking a break from England might have been right for me.

“But, first and foremost, I have to think about the football. It’s what I love doing and I felt that, come the end of it, I would be a lot happier at Manchester City than I would at Bayern Munich.”
