Phil Foden sends warning to Manchester City’s Premier League and European rivals over future plans



| Last Updated:


Manchester City have no intention of slowing down in the coming months and years despite complete an unprecedented five-goal haul in Saudi Arabia on Friday evening.

That’s according to Phil Foden, who starred in a convincing 4-0 win for Manchester City over Brazilian giants Fluminense on Friday evening, offering a second-half goal alongside a Julian Alvarez brace and a first-half own goal.

The win in Jeddah meant Manchester City made it five trophies claimed in a single calendar year, following on from their Treble at the end of the 2022/23 season, and the UEFA Super Cup back in August.

Some onlookers have suggested that it may mark the end of an era for Manchester City, but Foden has insisted that success once again in a major competition only encourages Pep Guardiola’s star-studded squad to win even more in the coming future.

Speaking to after the contest in Jeddah, Phil Foden admitted the importance of success in the FIFA Club World Cup to Manchester City as an organisation, but stressed that there is still plenty more motivation at the Etihad to win even more in future.

“It’s so important for the club. It’s amazing to win all five as well,” Foden said. “I’m playing with a special group of players. We kept going till the final whistle and gave everything we had. I think that’s me won everything now in England as well.

“I’m so delighted like I said. It’s all down to the team and the manager as well. It’s such a great side and we love winning trophies. It’s our first time we’re here and we want to do that again now and try and repeat what we’ve done.”

The Manchester City academy product continued, “It’s been an unbelievable journey and we want to continue winning.”

Phil Foden and his Manchester City teammates will be hoping to transform their fine performances in the Middle-East into domestic success, as they return to Premier League action with an away trip to Everton on December 27.
