Manchester City fans react as Guardiola praises Foden again

Some Manchester City fans have reacted online after Pep Guardiola once again lauded young midfielder Phil Foden.

The 19-year-old has had to make do with a regular role on the bench this season due to the continued form of the likes of David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Rodri and Ilkay Gundogan.

A large section of the City support are clamouring to see the starlet given a run of games by the manager, but the 48-year-old has so far resisted temptation.

In quotes published by The Sun from a new book ‘Pep’s City: The Making of a Superteam’, he said: “We didn’t give Foden a new contract by accident.

“He is the only player that can’t be sold under any circumstances – the only one. Not even for 500 million euros.

“Phil’s going nowhere – Phil is City. We won’t be signing anyone else for that position.

“When David Silva leaves, we know exactly who our new magician will be.”

Many are itching to see him given a chance right now, rather than when the sublime Silva moves on:
