Name: Phil Foden
Club: Manchester City
Made Senior Debut?: Yes (Manchester City)
Current National Level: England U21 International
Last Season Summary
2018/19 – Last season, Foden got to show glimpses of what he is capable of for Manchester City. Whilst he is such an exciting prospect, the task of breaking into the first team must appear daunting at times. But Foden has taken everything in his stride so far. From Pep’s press conferences which place plenty of weight on the youngsters shoulders, he has never been one to shy away from the ball during the game. Always wanting the ball to his feet, and a real eye for a pass, along with trickery and great ball control you can see why Guardiola raves about him..
Footy Files expectations this Season
2019/20 – We can almost guarantee that Foden will see a lot more game time this season. Two seasons ago he averaged 9 mins a match, last season he averaged 26 mins. This season will only increase further as Pep continues to nurture the youngster. Bleeding Foden into an already world-class side can not be easy but Pep appears to be doing a fine job. We’re calling it now, England call up before the season is over. One to watch.
