Phil Foden: Sky Sports pundit makes big claim about Manchester City ace | Football | Sport


That is the view of Sky Sports pundit and former Leicester defender Matt Elliott.

Foden, 17, rose to fame with in October with two goals in the under-17s World Cup final to lead England to a 5-2 win over Spain.

The attacking midfielder was named played of the tournament and also won BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year last Sunday.

Foden made his second start for Manchester City this evening in the Carabao Cup quarter-final against Leicester at the King Power Stadium.

Ahead of the clash, Elliott claimed he has seen enough of Foden already to see he will go far in the game.

“Let his natural talent just go and take over and he has bags and bags of that,” Leicester legend Elliott said.

“I saw him at the Under-17s World Cup recently, it was a superb performance. 

“And he’s got the confidence and the right attitude to go and perform at the high level on the big occasions as well. 

“Confidence is all part and parcel of it. Lots of players have got ability, it’s how you harness that. 

“Some people go into their shells, Phil Foden doesn’t seem like one of those. 

“He’s very expressive, not just how he plays but also in his personality. 

“That will help him integrate with the big names he is playing around.”
