Phil Foden assinou uma extensão de três anos a seu contrato com o Manchester City e ficará no clube até o verão de 2027

O jogador de 22 anos, reconhecido como um dos melhores jovens talentos do futebol, emergiu da academia do City para se tornar um dos jogadores mais confiáveis ​​de Pep Guardiola.

Ele já conquistou 11 troféus pelo clube - quatro títulos da Premier League, uma FA Cup, quatro Copas da Liga e dois Community Shields - e tem 18 internacionalizações pela Inglaterra.

A influência e o impacto de Foden nas duas últimas campanhas o levaram a ganhar o prêmio de Jogador Jovem do Ano da PFA e o Jogador Jovem da Temporada da Premier League por dois anos consecutivos.

Estando no City desde os nove anos de idade, ele diz que assinar este novo contrato é “um sonho que virou realidade”.

“É difícil colocar em palavras o quanto estou feliz por ter assinado este contrato”, disse Foden. "É um sonho tornado realidade.

“Fui torcedor do City toda a minha vida. Eu treinei aqui por tantos anos e até fui gandula. Eu amo muito este clube, então saber que vou fazer parte dele até 2027 é incrível.

“Melhorei muito nos últimos anos e muito disso se deve a Pep e sua equipe, que me orientam todos os dias no campo de treinamento. Trabalhar com eles me dá a melhor chance de melhorar ainda mais e me tornar o melhor jogador que posso ser.

“Com o elenco que temos aqui, sinto que posso continuar aprendendo e conquistando troféus. Essas são as duas coisas mais importantes para mim.

“Quero agradecer a cada pessoa do City porque sem eles eu não estaria onde estou hoje. Todos os treinadores da Academia com quem trabalhei, todos os jogadores com quem joguei e todos que trabalham nos bastidores. É uma honra fazer parte deste clube de futebol”.

Phil Foden: A meteoric rise

‘Phil Foden, He’s One of Our Own’ goes the terrace chant – and it’s clear that from the get-go Foden and City have proved a match made in heaven.

The bond between homegrown youngster playing for the team they grew up supporting and the fans is always an extra special attachment.

For the supporters, they see their own dreams being fulfilled on the pitch by someone who feels close to them. For the player, it’s the realisation of a lifelong ambition.

Phil Foden has achieved just that and so much more.

From being a ball boy at the Etihad to the fulcrum of City’s creative set, his journey has been the stuff straight out of a Hollywood script.

What’s more, Foden has done it the hard way, having to fight his way into a squad bursting with world-class quality from top to bottom.

Born and bred in Stockport, Phil’s outstanding natural ability and single-minded attitude and approach saw him tipped for the top right from the moment he joined our Academy as a young boy.

And when Pep Guardiola was appointed City boss in the summer of 2016, director of football Txiki Begiristain instantly alerted the new boss to the extra special talent that was being nurtured in our Academy.

That ability was demonstrated to startling effect on our tour to the United States in the summer of 2017 when Foden produced a quite dazzling display against Manchester United.

City may have been edged out 2-0 in Houston – but the real victory came in the shape of Foden’s extraordinary display that illustrated just what a rare talent he was.

And it prompted a memorable reaction from Pep – no stranger to recognising outstanding quality.

“It's a long time since I saw something like this. His performance was another level. He's 17 years old, he's a City player, he grew up in the academy, he loves the club, he's a City fan - for us he's a gift,” Guardiola declared. “He’s special.”

The die was cast.

After emerging as England’s shining star at the 2017 Under-17 World Cup, helping the Junior Lions lift the trophy as well as being voted player of the tournament and winning the Golden Ball, Foden’s impact was soon being felt at Club level too.

Foden made his City debut in November 2017, replacing Yaya Toure as a late substitute against Feyenoord. Two weeks later, came a first start for against Shakhtar Donetsk, which saw Phil become the youngest English player, at the age of 17 years and 192 days, to start in a Champions League match – and the first player born in the 2000s to do so.

By the end of that 2017/18 season, he had become the youngest ever Premier League winner, having appeared five times, earning him a winner’s medal.

The 2018/19 campaign saw City become the first side to win a clean sweep of every major domestic English trophy, and Foden notch up a series of notable firsts.

He registered his first-ever goal at senior level in our 3-0 Carabao Cup win away at Oxford in September 2018 and followed that up with a first Etihad strike in a 7-0 FA Cup success over Rotherham in January of 2019.

A maiden European goal in our 7-0 win over Schalke in a second leg last 16 tie saw Foden become both the youngest player ever to score for City in the Champions League and the youngest English player to score in a knockout stage of the competition.

He also registered a crucial, first Premier League goal in our pivotal 1-0 win over Tottenham in April 2019 as City ended a historic season with an unpreceded clean sweep of every major domestic English trophy.

Foden’s influence and impact was further enhanced during a 2019-20 season that saw him become even more of a pivotal figure.

He played 38 games across all competitions and was directly involved in 17 goals (eight goals and nine assists).

Foden also produced a man of the match display at Wembley as City secured a third successive Carabao Cup, beating Aston Villa 2-1, becoming the youngest-ever recipient of the Alan Hardaker Trophy.

The 2020/21 campaign saw Foden go from strength to strength and assume even greater responsibility in the wake of the departure of Club legend David Silva, a player he idolised and respected.

Foden was outstanding from the get-go in what proved a relentless, demanding season played against the challenging backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic.
