It is no secret that Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is in love with Phil Foden but on Wednesday night that love might have increased.
When Manchester City were in need of some magic to progress to the semis of the Champions league, it was the young Englishman who delivered.
Foden scored the decisive goal in the away leg having netted in the home fixture to ensure that the Cityzens are into their first semis under Pep Guardiola.
Speaking after the game, the Catalan boss had nothing but praise for the young player.
“You have the feeling he is a guy who never hides.”
“He always creates something. He is dynamic offensively, defensively and in the small spaces.
“He is learning to make decisions. He scored two important goals to help us be in the semi finals.
“In the quarter final of the UCL he was the important player to help us go to play PSG.”
Pep Guardiola is hoping that he can go past the semis and enhance the possibility of winning the Champions League for the first time with a different club other than Barcelona.
But if he will be able to achieve that, then he well needs Foden to be at his best again in the semis.
