As Manchester City won 4-1 at Anfield, Phil Foden put in an outstanding display… but his boss still needs more.
Pep Guardiola hopes that Phil Foden knows there is plenty of room for growth.
But the coach also said it is a privilege to have the boyhood Manchester City fan starring for his side.
Asked about the Englishman’s performance, Guardiola told Sky Sports: “He’s a guy who keeps the ball really well, he’s really aggressive.
“But still he is so young, he doesn’t understand in some positions what he has to do, so in the first half, he was not in the right positions.
“We worked but he is a little bit distracted sometimes in these positions. Playing wide is easier for him but he will learn.
“After that, the assist for the second goal and then scoring the fourth goal, we know what a huge talent he is, but he’s still young and we are still hopeful that he can understand that he can improve because in the first half he was not in the position that we needed and that’s why we suffered in some moments to get the control.”
