'Foden's time is coming' says Pep

Pep Guardiola envisages Phil Foden starting regularly very soon...

Pep Guardiola spoke to the media ahead of our trip to face the Gunners on Sunday...

Pep Guardiola has no fears of Phil Foden falling behind his peers at club and international level.

The City boss pointed out that the teenager has already clocked up 50 appearances so far and he believes he will soon be a first team regular.

"He has played 50 games and he is 19 years old," said Pep.

"He is in one of the top teams in Europe. We are delighted with him. He made a really good game and he will make incredible games in the future.

"I am delighted for him. He is more mature all the time, his teammates help him every session. He played 50 games, maybe not the 90 minutes each time, but he was involved.

"He has experienced tough moments.

"Last season against Tottenham we needed points and he started.

"When he doesn't start it’s because Kevin, David or Gundogan can play in that position. He plays more each season.

"One day, not far away, he will play every weekend. That is my feeling."
