the 50-year-old comments on the shinning of the Manchester City's young star performance.

Phil Foden

has been praised by many people now as he showed great potential in

Manchester City

.

Shaun Goater

, Macclesfield Youth coach, heaped praise upon the 20-year-old Star. He scored 93 goals out going for Manchester City and also scored in the win over

Chelsea

.

Goater believes that Foden can be the Ballon d'Or winner if he keeps going on the same track. He said:

"I think he can really go all the way. I can see him standing on the podium and being on the shortlist for the Ballon d’Or.

"I know that’s a huge thing to say about someone still so young, but he has this quality about him, and what I like about him is the energy he brings, the constant goal threat he brings - whether that’s scoring or assisting - and as a midfielder these are great qualities.

“He can play anywhere and he will play anywhere. I can really see his future as being one of the best in the world, he’s phenomenal for someone so young and I genuinely think in four or five years he could challenge for the Ballon d’Or, he’s got that much potential."

Also on the matter of the Carabao Cup, the 50-year-old said:

“I’m not at all surprised to see them in another semi-final.

“Pep Guardiola takes this competition very seriously, he’s won it three times since being at City and he’ll be wanting to win it again.

"He’s a serial winner, but the game against Manchester United will be very tough.”

About the Derby encounter's winner, he said:

"Obviously with my blue hat on, I want to see City win the competition again, but Manchester United are a club that, when in a semi-final, they know how to advance and they know how to win competitions."
