Guardiola names the most talented player he ever trained (spoiler: it's not Messi)
- Legendary Barcelona coach gives some unreal praise to Phil Foden.
- The 19-year-old midfielder was previously on Barca radars.
- Phil is a personal fan of Andres Iniesta.
"He (Foden) is the most talented player I have ever seen. His problem is sometimes his manager doesn't put him in starting XI." the former Barca boss said.
"He deserves all the minutes but with his competitors, it isn't easy. He works incredibly. He knows I'm here to help him," added Josep.
The 19-year-old made 26 appearances for the English club last season, scoring 7 goals, although he is not a striker. The player himself enjoys watching Andres Iniesta play and was earlier compared with the 35-year-old.
"But Iniesta, come on, he is on a different planet, so for them (Man City staff) to call me that is massive, it means a lot," told Phil after one of his benefits.
Some of the earlier reports linked the Englishman with his possible switch for Blaugrana, however, the player seems to be determined to continue under Guardiola.
