Phil Foden is a very special player, Owen Hargreaves has said.
Owen believes the English youngster has the potential to reach the level of David Silva in future.
According to him, he would definitely flourish at City and he would go on to be one of Premier League’s hottest prospects if he continues playing like he is currently.
He added that Foden should worry about looking at anybody else’s game because he has a bright career ahead of him.
His words, “I don’t think there is a better player you can learn from than David Silva,”
“Kevin De Bruyne is another one he is learning from, Bernardo Silva is another.
“But I remember one of my youth team managers said to me – I came on the pitch one day shouting out someone’s name that I had watched in the Champions League, I think it was David Beckham – my manager at the time when I was 16 took me to the side and said: ‘Owen, stop shouting out everyone else’s name, just be yourself, that’s good enough’.
“Phil Foden is at this level now that he’s good enough, he doesn’t have to worry about looking at anybody else’s game.
“Phil Foden is a really special player. In between the spaces, the lines, I think he’s as good as any player in the Premier League.
“His use of space is really special, he just needs the reps. When he gets the reps, I think he is going to reach the level of possibly a David Silva.
“It’s a long way away, but his starting point is exceptional.”
