Man City chief Soriano: These 2 kids can follow Foden

Manchester City chief Ferran Soriano says more youngsters are ready to follow Phil Foden into the first team.

Speaking on the Dr Football podcast earlier this week, Soriano was discussing the club's transfer strategy this summer and made a point when it comes to youth talent.

He said: "The current squad is very good. Not only with top players, experienced players that we have, but others that are coming through like [Cole] Palmer or [James] McAtee - these are very young, English players with a bright future.

"Phil Foden is a spectacular example of a boy that has been in our academy since he was 10 years old and he's a Manchester City fan. But, if I may say, we won the Premier League, the Premier League 2 and the U18 Premier League - and we did it again the season previous.

"There is a long list of very good young players that have been winning with City and are coming up and there will be some stars."
