Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden has won great sympathy and club legends from the Etihad have said he could win the Ballon d’Or in the future.
The 20-year-old is currently enjoying a superior season at the Etihad and has impressed in Sunday’s 4-1 win over Liverpool.
Former City striker Trevor Sinclair is extremely excited about the midfielder and he thinks he will be up as one of the best in the world.
“I really believe he can be good enough to win the Golden Ball if he keeps his feet on the ground and keeps working tirelessly as he is doing now,” Sinclair initially told talkSPORT.
“I think he is already talking about the new player of the year in the Premier League and maybe the player of the year, because he has been so good and so consistent.”
“I do not think many people understand how fast he is either. “Not only when he runs fast, but he moves with the ball and his incredible balance”, concluded the Englishman.
Foden has five goals and three assists in 17 league appearances this season and manager Pep Guardiola is impressed, as is the club’s other legend, Shaun Goater, who also thinks the Englishman could challenge elite world football awards.
“I say it every time, in the next five years he is a challenger for the Golden Ball. “He influences games every time he plays,” Goater said initially.
“I like Phil when he is central, his dribbling qualities stand out. When he is sideways, he plays the role for the team and keeps that width. He spins, dribbles and does all kinds of things.
“Watch the game against Liverpool. “Andy Robertson is a great defender, but Foden goes beyond him before changing legs,” concluded the former City striker. / Telegraphy /
