Manchester City star Kyle Walker has defended Pep Guardiola's tactics in their UEFA Champions League final loss to Chelsea.
The Citizens' wait for a first UCL title continues after they suffered a 1-0 loss to their Premier League rivals at the Estadio do Dragao last month.
Guardiola's call to start the final without a recognised holding midfielder received a lot of criticism, but Walker has now defended the Spaniard's decision.
"Listen, people can talk. I've seen a few things or my mates have text me about tactics, personnel, this, that and the other," the City fullback told the Daily Mail.
"It's a game of football, it's 95 minutes and anything can happen. Obviously, we wanted the result to go our way but the manager, or whoever, he picks who he feels can go and get the result and what's best for the club.
"When he gets it right nobody says anything, and when he gets it wrong – or when they think he's got it wrong – people are questioning things.
"I think it's a little bit unfair sometimes when as soon as Manchester City don't win, then it's tactics or maybe players on the pitch, but we needed to do more and it's as simple as that.
"I don't think we created enough in the game and I don't think I'm speaking out of turn by saying that, I think everyone could tell on the pitch."
