NETFLIX hit The Last Dance has inspired Kyle Walker-Peters to try and reach new heights.

The docuseries chronicles the career of NBA legend Michael Jordan, with a focus on his final season for the Chicago Bulls.

Throughout the series, viewers are left marvelling at Jordan’s quest for greatness, which includes singling out his teammates who aren’t up to scratch.

However, Saints’ defender reckons every top side needs someone ready to call out those who aren’t pulling their weight.

Speaking on talkSPORT’s GameDay podcast, Walker-Peters said: “The Last Dance has really inspired me.

“Everybody knows Michael Jordan but that was a real insight into what he was like as an athlete.

“I had no idea he was that harsh on himself and on his teammates, he was almost like a bully, but a bully in a good sense.

“He would kill his teammate until his teammate improved and sometimes you need that in a team.

“That was really inspirational.”

Having played under Mauricio Pochettino at Spurs, Walker-Peters knows a thing or two about having demands placed upon him.

It’s the same at Saints, where manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has a way of playing that asks a lot of wing-backs.

But Walker-Peters admits he thrives on being able to bomb up and down the wing, especially as looked up to Barcelona legend Dani Alves when he was making his way through Spurs’ youth system.

“Ten years ago, it wasn’t so much getting up and down, it was about staying as a unit and staying with the back four”, he added.

“Now it’s about over-lapping and under-lapping. I’d like to consider myself a fit guy so even in the youth teams, I was playing like that.

“I loved Dani Alves and he was playing like that ages ago.

“I’ve always had the components to be the modern-day full-back but what I need to add to my game is goals.

“I’ve got a lot of assists when I’ve had opportunities to play but I do find myself in positions where I can actually score, and I need to be a bit more selfish at times which is something my dad is always telling me.”
