Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes Phil Foden can handle the pressure placed upon him at Manchester City.

Many fans believe Foden could go on to become one of the Club’s greatest of all time, such is his natural ability. 

It’s a big burden to bear but Guardiola believes Foden can deliver. 

“I feel that he can handle the pressure,” Guardiola told Manchester City’s official website.

“He’s still enjoying playing football, he has to feel that he can improve. His career will be up and down, that’s for sure, as footballers, they are up and down. It’s not all his career winning Premier Leagues and being top.

“But if he still remains the passion that he has to play in football, to enjoy with the ball, and to every day have the ball, you see his eyes, how bright they are.

“When that’s going to happen, Phil always will be there, and the future, he will retire, we will see what he has done, but absolutely it belongs to him.”
