Pep Guardiola’s Plan For Phil Foden At Man City Is Making Liverpool And Manchester United Look…

Pep Guardiola’s plan for Phil Foden at Man City is making Liverpool and Manchester United look…

Foden is showing the benefits of City’s long-term plan for him, with Pep Guardiola insisting for years that the first team squad is the best place for his development. Talk of loan moves were always knocked back, and City took criticism from outside the club for the limited playing time given to Foden when a number of his England under-20 and under-21 teammates were getting much more playing time. Look at United, who elevated Brandon Williams and Mason Greenwood last season to relatively prominent roles. If there was an occasion where either played ahead of Foden, Twitter would be full of opposition keyboard fans declaring that their young talents are better – or at least being managed better – because they were getting more first team minutes. It’s the same with Liverpool, with fans in Merseyside shouting at the rooftops that they have a better prospect in Curtis Jones than City have in Foden. In fairness, Jones has risen to be a key squad member for Liverpool, with injuries this season giving the talented midfielder more responsibility. Will he get near the starting XI when all players are back from injury?Regular comparisons are made with Foden and Chelsea’s Mason Mount, with the fellow England international a favourite under former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and impressing in the early days of Thomas Tuchel’s reign. Mount is one of few young English attacking midfielders who has played more than Foden – but the City man has been more productive with goals and assists in fewer appearances than Mount.
