Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has come out to say that midfield improvements won’t come quickly next season. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, with a legend like Gundogan leaving for Barcelona weeks ago, there will surely be lapses that will have to be gradually filled in the middle of the park next season.
Pep added that it might be time for a player like Foden to step up and grab the opportunity.
His words, “Phil can play in five positions – from striker, left-winger, right-winger, attacking midfielder – he can play everywhere,”
“Just in the middle, he has to be more careful in many, many aspects and maybe needs a little more time to realise what he has to do defensively especially, but of course he has something special in those positions, the quality in one-against-one, arrive to the box, sense of goal, so it is all there.”
“It is massively important to have a player like him who you can use in five positions. With Gundo leaving, maybe he can play more in that position. We will see.”
