Man City manager Guardiola: Southgate should be excited to work with Foden

Pep Guardiola says England boss Gareth Southgate should be excited to work with Phil Foden.

The 20-year-old midfielder has been given plenty of playing time since the restart, scoring in consecutive Premier League matches against Burnley and Liverpool.

Guardiola told BBC Sport: "All the managers like to work with good players, Phil is one. The difference from Phil is behaviour.

"Never one bad face, never one complaint. I am more than satisfied with him. Gareth Southgate has an incredible talent for national team."
