Manchester City: Fans heap praise on Phil Foden after immediate Champions League impact

Manchester City: Fans heap praise on Phil Foden after immediate Champions League impact - Manchester City

Phil Foden made an instant impact from the bench in Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb with a goal in the 95th minute on Tuesday night. Indeed, the Stockport-born creative midfielder has been talked up by his club manager since carrying England’s under-17s to World Cup glory and, judging from the reaction below, a lot of City fans are right behind him.

Should Phil Foden leave Manchester City?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Still, it’s been a frustrating season for Foden so far, who has had to bide his time at the Etihad Stadium amid the glittering array of talent on offer. In fact, he’s played just 10 Premier League minutes all season, as per WhoScored.

Furthermore, pundits such as talkSPORT’s Tony Cottee have claimed he needs to be sent out on loan, but it seems the 19-year-old has complete faith in Pep Guardiola to bring him into one of the strongest, if not the strongest, team in Europe as he remains on the sidelines.

If he does breakthrough, he’ll be the first player from City’s new £250m academy to fully establish himself in the starting 11 and, for a lot of City fans, the fact he’s from Greater Manchester should make it all that much sweeter.

After the performance, Foden posted a photo of himself hugging Raheem Sterling with the caption ‘Things you love to see’, and City fans showed just how much they’re backing the youngster.
