Richards has dig at Man City kids: Only Foden has right attitude

Former Manchester City defender Micah Richards believes Phil Foden is a class apart from the other promising youngsters at the club.

City now possess one of the best youth teams in the country and Foden is the shining light of the club's academy.

"Phil Foden is an exceptional talent," he told the Gloved podcast.

"He is going to get games.

"Whereas some of the young players are just happy to say they play for Man City.

"They've got pictures on Instagram, they've got the nicest cars and they're earning good money.

"No disrespect to them, but they think they've made it already.

"It's only really Foden who's probably going to get a chance within the current squad because he's the only one who is showing the signs that he could play at that level."
