Phil Foden says Pep Guardiola’s faith in his ability has been a “massive” factor in his development after the 20-year-old Manchester City playmaker was called up to the England squad for the first time.
City boss Guardiola has regularly lavished praise upon Foden, saying he would not sell the young star even for 500 million euros ($590 million).
Foden has picked up two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and three League Cup medals since starring in England’s Under-17 World Cup triumph in 2017.
Last season he played 38 games for City, including starting the Champions League last-16 second-leg win against Real Madrid.
