Pep Guardiola has yet again admired the young English midfielder of Manchester City, Phil Foden.
is one of
’s favorite players and he is never reluctant to praise the 20 years old English midfielder. He has said before that Foden is the best young player he has ever worked with and admired his potential.
Foden is getting more playing time this season especially in the Champions League. Guardiola has long predicted a huge future for Foden and says he is an inspiration for other young players trying to break into the first team.
The City boss said:
“We are more than delighted to have him from the Academy. The message he can give [to other young players] if you have the skills and especially passion.
“I love his passion. The only thing in his mind is to be a better player for himself, his club and his national country.
“In training he is a dream come true for managers. He’s so patient, normally when you become older you lose this. But he's like a little boy when he goes on the pitch in the training session, the first thing he is looking for is the ball and to play with his mates, to pass and to shoot.
“The first achievement is 50 games, he will play much, much more in the future. Hopefully he can have the passion to improve but knowing him it will happen.”
