May 21 - You’ll Never Beat Kyle Walker puts listeners in the shoes of a Premier League winner who takes them to places they can likely never imagine going. From Champions League Finals, walking out at Anfield, watching England go 1-0 up in a home Euros final, playing a World Cup, going up against Lionel Messi, Kyle shares his footballing journey first-hand.

In this exciting new commission from BBC Sounds, Three Lions legend Kyle Walker tells his story like never before, showcasing the best of British sporting storytelling and bringing audiences together ahead of an exciting summer of sport.

Hosted by Chris Hughes, Kyle reflects on his time in the game from Sheffield United to present day. Kyle discusses everything around football, his longevity and giving listeners a first-hand insight into what it is really like to be at the top of the Premier League and international tree for so long. Listeners will also find out who he is a player, his hinterland in the game, games of his playing days, favourite opponents, hardest opponents, best goals, worst moments and more.

In episode one of You’ll Never Beat Kyle Walker, the Manchester City captain talks to Chris Hughes about the best players he’s played with and against; reveals how he defends the most difficult wide men in the world, and discusses how, despite winning 17 major trophies, he still doubts himself. Kyle also identifies who he believes is the best right back in the world - not called Kyle Walker - puts together his perfect fullback from the best parts of his peers, talks about the standout under-the-radar players in the Premier League that he goes up against, and discusses his bromance with Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr.

Kyle Walker says: “I've been lucky to have had an incredible footballing journey so far, from working through the ranks at Sheffield United, playing for Spurs and England and to winning six Premier League titles and the Champions League with Manchester City. Like all players I've had my fair share of ups and downs in my playing career and have worked and played with some incredible people. My new podcast will look back across my life in football and I hope football fans will enjoy listening to some of the untold stories people who have played their part in it. It's not always easy to put into words just what being a footballer is like from the tough times to the glory days - there's always pressure. The podcast will give the people listening new insights into the game and the world of those of us lucky enough to realise their dreams and play as professionals at the top level."

Stevie Middleton, 5 Live commissioning executive says: “You’ll Never Beat Kyle Walker takes listeners beyond the pitch and into the heart of the game from Kyle’s own perspective. Most of us can never begin to imagine what it’s like to be captain of Manchester City, a leader within the England team and one of football’s finest defenders – this podcast is all of those stories and more with plenty of laughs along the way.”

You’ll Never Beat Kyle Walker is available on BBC Sounds on 29 May with new episodes dropping weekly.
