Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero to miss remainder of season

City won their third title in seven seasons with five games to spare on Sunday after a record-breaking campaign that has seen manager Pep Guardiola's side outclass their rivals, but Walker believes there is potential to do more.

"Maybe I am wrong but before you win the Champions League as a club you have to win more Premier Leagues in a row first, to get respect in Europe that you are a top club".

I will sign up right now if we can do what we did this season again next season.

"It's been a dream ever since I was a kid growing up playing football with my mates and winning it means everything".

City were regarded as genuine Champions League contenders this year, in what was their seventh consecutive season in the competition, but they were eliminated by Liverpool in the quarter-finals. After 12 months out of the game, he returned to manage Bayern Munich for three seasons.

He added: "Of course we are going to try but I don't know if we are like a club to have the power on an off the pitch to achieve and to get there". You know how outstanding they work.

The manager, though, is concerned his squad's performance levels will drop, now that they effectively have only pride left to play for this term.

Such has been City's dominance this season that new best marks for most wins, most goals and most points in a Premier League season are within their reach.

"That's why it would be nice to finish good". The important thing is to win the title but maybe the records can help us be focused against the teams fighting to avoid relegation.

He said: "It would be uncomfortable to finish in a bad way in the next five games. What I felt this season is something wonderful". "But athletes need a target".

City certainly owe it to the Premier League to give it their best over the next few weeks, as all of their remaining games are against clubs who are still in danger of being relegated.

"It is four or five weeks out".
