Will Manchester City win the Premier League this season?
Ex-Premier League player Carlton Palmer is a big fan of the youngster and believes he’s a phenomenal talent, telling This is Futbol: “Well he’s stand out for Manchester City and England. He’s a phenomenal talent.
“They’ve lost Silva, they’ve lost good players in there and I think the time’s right. As Pep always does, he balances out when the time is right and the time’s right for Foden to come in now and I think that for the next year or two years, if he gets his head down, he could become one of the world’s greats.”
Foden has played his part on the international stage as well and was part of Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 squad. The youngster featured on three occasions in the tournament with the Three Lions reaching the final against Italy.
The youngster also received praise for his performances from former City player and Sky Sports pundit Micah Richards, who spoke on the television network following his old side’s victory against Brighton and said: “He’s a really special talent and he’s got the manager who believes in him. There was times when even pundits were saying he should go on loan, get some experience but he persisted with him and it was about timing and it’s working.”
