Man City manager Guardiola believes Foden becoming 'serious, important player'

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says Phil Foden is becoming a serious player.

The 20-year-old was arguably man-of-the-match in the 2-1 win over Aston Villa, scoring the equalising goal after John McGinn put the hosts ahead.

"This guy [Foden] is growing," Guardiola said to Sky Sports.

"His influence in our games is massive. He's becoming a serious player.

"Phil right now is becoming such an important player. His influence in the final third is so important."
