Manchester City’s Phil Foden has made a damning admission on his trophy haul at just 23-years-old in comparison to some of his Premier League colleagues.
Foden – who has gone from strength to strength under the coaching and guidance of Pep Guardiola over the last few seasons – placed the cherry on the icing on a very glorious cake during the final weeks of last season.
The City playmaker not only claimed his fifth Premier League title and second FA Cup trophy, but also got his hands on the UEFA Champions League crown following a commendable performance in the Istanbul final against Inter.
Phil Foden’s staggering total of five Premier League medals, two FA Cups, four League Cups, two Community Shields, and a Champions League winners title puts him amongst some of the most successful English players of all-time, and he still has perhaps a decade at the top of the game to go.
Speaking this week in an exclusive interview with BBC Sport, the Manchester City and England versatile playmaker boldly stated that his trophy haul at just 23 already exceeds most tally’s for players at the end of their careers.
Foden explained, “I could never have dreamed to have won this amount of trophies at the age of 23, it’s a joke. Some people don’t finish their career with what I’ve won.”
But the Manchester City academy graduate certainly isn’t content with what he has already achieved in the game, and has his eyes set on being one of the standout performers in the ongoing English top-flight campaign.
“I want to try and be one of the best players in the Premier League this year, I’m going to try and show people what I can do; whether it’s in that central role that I played in against Newcastle, or out wide,” Foden said. “I want a run of games, in my flow, that’s my aim.”
Phil Foden returns from international duty with England this week and will be looking to maintain Manchester City’s 100 per cent winning record in the top division so far this season, as he and his teammates travel to London for a clash against West Ham.
City have so far dismissed of two on-the-road matches with victories this season, claiming a dominant three points over Burnley on the opening night of the new season, and thanking Rodri for his last minute winner at Bramall Lane against Sheffield United.
West Ham United will pose a stern test for the Blues, as David Moyes’ side currently sit fourth in the Premier League table, and have big ambitions of going one step further than last season when they claimed the UEFA Conference League title.
