Paolo Di Canio explained why Phil Foden's embrace with Pep Guardiola was remarkable after the victory over Borussia Dortmund.

"

Guardiola trained and raised the puppy,"

Di Canio told Sky Sport Italia.

"

Foden

was a talent who had already expressed himself with the England's youth teams

.

"He showed his talent, but young people often play for their own sake, heel or toe. He made him understand how it's possible to be a protagonist in an important way.

"Foden didn't only score in the first leg, a decisive goal, but in the second leg and has continuity in the game.

"He is also tough in the non-possession phase. He doesn't look that tough, but he's actually very tough and edgy, he enters, and with the ball at his feet he's a joy to watch.

"The hug is beautiful because it explains the devotion of a lad who understands that he was lucky enough to have met his mentor."
