After the return match of the Champions League against Borussia, Manchester City’s players had a legitimate reason to celebrate reaching the next stage. The team flew into the semifinals for the first time under Guardiola, making the sheikhs’ dream of winning the tournament a little closer to fulfillment. True, the same rich PSG with Arab money awaits them further. But all this is a matter of the future.

In the game against Borussia, the goal was scored by 20-year-old Phil Foden – a graduate of Manchester City, who this season was entrenched in the starting lineup of the Citizens. And thanks to the goal scored, the player established several achievements at once: he became only the second footballer to score in two Champions League quarterfinals at the age of 21, and also the first Englishman to score 6 goals in the tournament at this age.
After the match, Foden’s Twitter post appeared where he turned to another star – PSG striker Kilian Mbappe. “Are you ready?” Foden asked, noting the Frenchman.
What’s the big deal?
The problem is that Foden has not agreed on the release of this tweet. A marketing agency is in charge of his social media and has decided to take charge. The Daily Mail wrote that Foden was furious with such a provocative post, which immediately garnered thousands of likes and retweets. And he asked to remove it. The player will probably no longer work with this agency.
Interestingly, this is not the first such incident with a City player. In 2019, Raheem Sterling ended his relationship with PR company Purple PR after information leaked that Raheem was supposed to wear the England captain’s armband for his 50th match.
This season, Pep’s love for Foden has finally transformed into playtime. Phil often comes out as a left midfielder in a 4-3-3 formation, although his position is conditional. Its strong point is in controlling the speed of the attack. He often gets the ball with his back to the opponents’ goal, thanks to his puny physique, he eludes defensive players and directs the attack of Manchester City in the right direction.
This quality is incredibly valuable for Guardiola: after all, he has enough cool soldiers, but few artists. Two years ago, he said the following about Phil: “I mentioned it in the press, but I never spoke to Phil’s face – he is the most talented of those with whom I have worked. This guy has everything to become one of the best in the world.”
