, 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



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."
