Man City RB Kyle Walker mimics Leonardo Dicaprio to announce his contract extension valid until June 2026: “I’m not leaving”

ESPN ranked Kyle Walker as the third-best right back in the world last season, and the Englishman’s stock rose after a successful campaign with Manchester City last season. The former Tottenham Hotspur man helped City to a treble and has been a mainstay in the England squad for the past few years.

Questions were raised about Walker’s commitment to Pep Guardiola’s side earlier this summer, as Bayern Munich came very close to signing the Englishman. However, City made a U-turn and announced his contract with them in a video reminiscent of a scene from ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Clubs took announcements to the next level this summer, especially with new signings, as Burnley became famous for the creativity in their announcement videos, drawing inspiration from some of the most famous scenes in Hollywood movies. Manchester City have taken things to the next level with their own version of a scene in the movie Wolf of Wall Street to announce Kyle Walker’s contract extension.

In the announcement video, Kyle Walker stands on a podium in a sharp suit, reminiscent of the one DiCaprio wore in the famous award-winning movie. Walker shouts, ‘I’m not leaving,’ three times, prompting an uproar from the City squad sitting in front of him, which includes Pep Guardiola, Jack Grealish, Nathan Ake, Phil Foden, and Bernardo Silva. He continues in the video, saying: ‘The show goes on; this is my home!’

The video has garnered a lot of views on social media, with people praising the club for their creativity while also acknowledging Kyle Walker’s acting skills.

What is Kyle Walker’s new contract with Man City?

Despite falling out of favour with Pep Guardiola last season and losing his place to youngster Rico Lewis, Kyle Walker has earned himself a new contract at Manchester City, keeping him at the club until 2026. The former Tottenham right-back endured a difficult campaign last season as he struggled to hold down a place in the team, even starting the Champions League final from the bench.

This fueled rumors of a move to Bayern Munich this summer, as the Bundesliga giants were keen to bring the English international to the Allianz Arena. A convincing conversation with Pep Guardiola kept the 33-year-old at the club he joined from Tottenham in 2017.

Regarding his new contract at the Etihad, Walker said: ‘I’m thrilled to sign a new deal. My future is with Manchester City, which is the best thing for me. I’ve enjoyed every single moment of the past six years at this fantastic club. I have an amazing coach, great teammates, and staff; our fans are the best. The treble-winning season is one I will never forget, and we’re ready to go again and try to win more trophies.’
