Guardiola: Foden can achieve whatever he wants

Pep Guardiola says Phil Foden can achieve whatever he wants to.

The teenager earned the Man of the Match award with a composed display at Wembley in Sunday's Carabao Cup triumph over Aston Villa, providing the assist for Sergio Aguero's opener.

Having proven he can shine on the big stage, Foden staked a claim for a more regular starting spot and Guardiola says he has full confidence the midfielder will go on to achieve great things.

"I want the best for him," Guardiola said, addressing the media ahead of our midweek FA Cup trip to Sheffield Wednesday.

"He will get what he deserves. Of course, I am delighted about his performance and behaviour in good and bad moments.

"Work and work and in the end, it will always pay off.

"(His next step is to keep) improving, improving, improving.

"At 19, you have a lot to learn but with this behaviour, he can reach whatever he wants."
