Cole Palmer aiming to follow Foden footsteps after first Man City goal

Cole Palmer wants to be the next player to graduate from Manchester City's academy.

The 19-year-old scored his first goal for City in Tuesday's 6-1 victory over Wycombe Wanderers in the Carabao Cup.

"I'm over the moon, to be honest that's probably the best feeling I've ever had," he said, via the Manchester Evening News.

"When I see it go in and hear the fans. Thats why we work as little kids. I've got to keep going, get more opportunities to try and have moments like that again.

"The manager trusts us so we trust him back., you can see on the training pitch how many of us train with him. To get the opportunity tonight, we're all delighted."

Asked about following Phil Foden's path into the first-team, the local Manchester lad added: "Of course he gives you inspiration to see someone who's come through the academy to the first team so I don't see why I can't do it and hopefully I go on and do it."
