Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker has admitted that he was “rusty” against Besiktas in the Europa League on Thursday.
The England international right-back was playing his first competitive match in nine months after recovering from a long-term injury.
Walker was on the pitch in Istanbul for 76 minutes and was delighted to have finally returned to action for Spurs.
