Manchester City winger Phil Foden has hailed Pep Guardiola for his role in helping him become a better central midfielder.

The England international has mostly featured for City from the flank but played in the middle during Tuesday’s Champions League victory over RB Leipzig.

Playing alongside Rodri and Rico Lewis, Foden gave an impressive performance but stated that there’s room for him to improve.

Foden went on to lavish praise on Pep Guardiola – hailing him as the best in the world.

He said: “He’s the best manager I could have asked for he said.

“His attention to detail – I’ve still got so many things that II want to get better at, especially playing in that role in midfield.

“I need to be more alert in the defensive side and get my positions right -I know that and I’m trying my hardest to get better at it and improve.”
