Manchester City star Phil Foden wants respect for five-star Manchester City after Pep Guardiola’s side became the first English club to lift five major trophies in a calendar year after Club World Cup glory.

Manchester City have won the Premier League, FA Cup, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup this year.

“‘I don’t think there’s enough credit,” Foden said. “It’s unbelievably hard and so demanding — every three days playing games. Out of all that effort, to say that we’ve done this is so good.

“We want to keep building on this. Now that we’ve won it, we know what it takes and we’ll have the experience for next time when we get to the later stages.

Hopefully, we just keep going as a club and getting better. We’ve won all five but now the job’s not done. We want to do it again.”

Foden added: “We’re always that hungry to keep winning.

“So that’s the game and when you play for Manchester City you don’t stop. You always have to win. I wanted to win this one because not only was it a big competition for the club — it was to win all five as well. 

“I thought if we win this it would give us a boost that we needed going back into the season.”
