Kyle Walker’s England career has been left in tatters after his flouting of government lockdown rules left boss Gareth Southgate ‘livid’. 

The Manchester City full-back was forced to issue a grovelling apology on Sunday after it emerged he had ignored the measures put in place to stop the spread of the coronavirus and hosted a £2,200 sex party with two prostitutes. 

Manchester City have opened an internal investigation following the gathering at the defender’s rented Cheshire property, with the player set to be hit with a hefty fine, reported to be upwards of £200,000.

However, the punishment could be much more severe as far as Walker’s England career is concerned, with there being every chance he may never pull on the Three Lions jersey again.

According to The Star, Southgate has ‘been left seething’ by the actions of one of his senior players – who had a key role in helping the side reach the World Cup semi-finals in 2018.

Since then, Walker has found himself struggling to hold on to his right-back berth, with both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Aaron Wan-Bissaka being preferred, and the City stopper being deployed in a more unfamiliar role on the right-hand side of a back three. 

Southgate had issued his own emotional plea to fans via a letter at the outset of the coronavirus crisis, and has since taken a 30 per cent paycut to help the FA comabt losses during the pandemic.

Walker did issue a grovelling apology on Sunday evening, releasing a video on social media to convey his regret.  

‘I want to take this opportunity to issue a public apology for the choices I made last week,’ the 29-year-old said. 

‘I understand my position as a professional footballer brings the responsibility of being a role model. As such, I want to apologise to my family, friends, football club, supporters and the public for letting them down.’

Walker is the second Premier League star to be caught out ignoring govenrment measures on social distancing and self-isolation.

Jack Grealish was forced into his own apology after he attended a gathering hosted at the penthouse flat of former Aston Villa team-mate Ross McCormack in Birmingham.
