I feel like I am being harassed - Kyle Walker

I feel like I am being harassed - Kyle Walker
Manchester City defender Kyle Walker has spoken out after recent news about him breaking the UK lockdown rules.

Walker who was pictured visiting his parent and sister during the lockdown claim he feels he is being harassed and that in this situation, his sister and parents' privacy is being invaded.

In his statement, the Manchester City man explained what really happened and also revealed he doesn't feel safe in his own home again.

'I feel as though I have stayed silent for long enough. In light of the most recent article published about me and my family, I feel as though I have no choice but to address things publicly,' Walker said

'I have recently gone through one of the toughest periods of my life, which I take full responsibility for. However, I now feel as though I am being harassed. This is no longer solely affecting me, but affecting the health of my family and my young children too.'

'In relation to the events on Wednesday, I travelled to Sheffield to give my sister a birthday card and present, but also to speak to one of the few people I believe I can trust in my life'

'She hugged me to remind me how much she cares and that I am loved. What am I meant to do – push her away?

'I then travelled to my parents’ house to pick up some home-cooked meals. Again, it’s been an extremely tough couple of months for them: everything I’ve gone through in my life they have gone through with me.'

'What have my parents and sister done to deserve their privacy being invaded by photographers following me to their homes? I constantly feel as though I am being followed. I don’t even feel safe in the confines of my own home – why should they have to feel like that too? Who deserves that?
