Pep Guardiola made a witty comment on Phil Foden calling him ‘ shy guy’ to which the youngster has responded. The Manchester City forward has hit back on the remarks of his manager.
The Stockport-born playmaker insists that he is not waved off by the remarks of what they say about him and only wants to go about his business.
“He has his own opinions and I stick by how I am,” Foden told reporters while on international duty with England U21s.
“I just know that I’m ready to play.”
“I feel like I am. I try to show him every day in training. I’m going to fight for it every day. I’m ready to play whenever.”
“My team-mates are telling me to be patient but obviously I’m hungry and want to play now,” he added.
“It will be nice if Pep watched the Turkey game but maybe he’s taken a little holiday to play golf or something! I wouldn’t blame him.”
Foden is one of the brightest youngster in City’s squad and Pep would not want one more Sancho like situation. The youngster does get a start but will have to be deployed as much as possible in order to make him feel home.
