Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker posted a picture of himself all smiles ahead of the club’s trip to Besiktas in the Europa League.
Walker has been out of action for an extended period with injury problems, but is expected to make a return to the first team for the game in Turkey tomorrow night.
His return to the side creates a number of benefits for boss Mauricio Pochettino such as releasing Eric Dier to play at centre-back and injecting some much needed experience into the club’s defence.
Walker appeared to be in good spirits as he posed for snaps alongside teammates Benjamin Stambouli and Danny Rose ahead of the game, which also gives a hint of Pochettino’s thinking with regards to his team in other areas.
It’s important for Walker to get through the game without any setbacks as he looks to win his place back ahead of a busy Christmas and New Year period for the club.
