Man City fullback Walker says Foden best young player he's seen

Manchester City fullback Kyle Walker says teammate Phil Foden is the best young player he's seen.

Foden has risen through the ranks at the Manchester club and is starting to show his class after having to wait patiently for a run in the first team.

"He is the best youngster I have ever seen," the City right-back told the club's official website.

"That is after playing at Tottenham with the likes of Harry Kane, Ryan Mason, Andros Townsend, Steven Caulker, Harry Winks, who are very, very good players. Phil is leaps ahead of them for me, just because of his knowledge of the game.

"I think if he just improves on his final ball, on assisting and his final decision making on that, I think that comes with experience. As a player and as a human being, he is top class and I wish him all the best in everything that he does because he deserves it all."
