Guardiola: Foden Is Ready For England

share on:

Pep Guardiola has stated that Manchester City midfielder, Phil Foden is ready to play for England.

The youngster is a rising star in the Premier League, but only made five appearances last season.

Guardiola has also stated that Foden will get enough playing time this season to get a shot at the England shirt.

“No, no, I don’t feel the pressure about that,” he replied. “I feel the pressure to win the games. We do our best, I do my best.

“I think Phil is ready [for England]. If he wasn’t ready [for City], he wouldn’t be here. He’s ready and after − it’s the same case with Leroy [Sane] − he can compete with David [Silva], with Gundo [Ilkay Gundogan], with Kevin [De Bruyne] when he’s fit, with Dinho [Fernandinho], with the top players.

“If you see the big 10-20 clubs in Europe in all the competitions, you don’t see many people playing who are 18-19 years old, maybe one, two, three… but not too many.

“He’s special, his work ethic is excellent, he will have a lot of minutes this season and after that Gareth has his own decision.”
