KYLE WALKER showed he is still a Tottenham man at heart.
That’s by angrily launching an Arsenal shirt into the crowd after Manchester City’s FA Cup win yesterday.
Nathan Ake scored the only goal at the Etihad as Pep Guardiola triumphed over former No2 Mikel Arteta in the fourth round tie.
But Arsenal fans were still jubilant despite the result, having opened up a five-point lead over City in the title race.
The Gunners even have a game in hand to potentially increase their lead to eight points.
But one excited Gooner got carried away as he threw an Arsenal shirt at Walker as the right-back departed the field last night.
Walker, 32, spent eight years with the London side’s fierce rivals Tottenham.
And he showed he still has a soft spot for his old side by refusing to ignore the incident.
Instead, Walker angrily bent down to pick up the shirt from the floor.
And without looking at the culprit, he hurled the Arsenal jersey straight back into the crowd.

Football fans certainly found the exchange amusing, with many questioning whether Walker has even moved on from his days in the capital.
One said: “Always Spurs haha.”
Another declared: “He’s Spurs through and through.”
One joked: “He’s still got that Tottenham DNA lol.”
Another added: “Should have kicked it away instead.”
After the game, Guardiola hailed City’s resilience after admitting his surprise at Arsenal’s game plan.
He said: “We were definitely better in the second half. Arsenal have taken a step forward. It was a tight game and you realise how good a side they are.
“I did not expect the approach from them – man-to man – it was difficult to build up but we beat the team at the top of the league and are in the next round.”
