Guardiola will not sell Foden

Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola mentioned Phil Foden in his new book, which will be out on October 24th.

Pep Guardiola has allocated a place to the prodigy of Manchester City, Phil Foden in the new book Pep’s City: The Making of a Superteam, which will soon go on sale. The 19-year-old player appeared in the Spaniard's memoirs in a positive way, and the coach burst out compliments in his address.

“It is no coincidence that we entered into a new contract with Foden. This is the only player who should not be sold under any circumstances. The only one. Even for 500 million euros.

Phil won't go anywhere. Foden is City. We will not sign anyone else to this position. When David Silva leaves, we know for sure who will be our new wizard.

Foden grew up with us. He is one of us and will become a brilliant player, one of the best in the Premier League. One thing is clear: Foden has a place in the first team. I would be interested to know if another coach would give him a chance to develop or would send him away on loan.

I would not want to leave Phil out of the squad for certain games, but I have to think about the whole team. Phil understands this”, Guardiola wrote.

Such words of Guardiola became the reason that the Citizens before this also lost talented Jadon Sancho. Therefore, the Spaniard did not stint on compliments, in order to prove to the 19-year-old player how important he is to the club. At the same time, his playing practice cannot be envied.

This season, Foden entered the pitch four times in the Citizens’ jersey. In three matches, he appeared as a substitute, playing only 44 minutes. Only in the League Cup match did the winger play the entire match against Preston (3:0). Of the effective actions, the football player scored a goal against Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League. The Englishman appeared on the pitch on the 90th minute and managed to score a second goal before the final whistle.
