Phil Foden returns from injury to training.
England’s ‘The Athletic’ reported on the 18th (Korean time), “Manchester City’s Foden has returned to first-team training ahead of the second leg of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) against Bayern Munich.”
Foden is a Manchester City star youth. At the age of 9 he joined the Manchester City youth team and continued to develop. Since his youth days, he has been a highly anticipated resource even inside, to the extent that he received the Youth League Young Player of the Year Award and the Player of the Year Award.
At the age of 16 he was called up by manager Pep Guardiola. Foden was called up to the first team in the 2016-17 season and trained with him, and made his professional debut in the 2017-18 season and began to make his name known in earnest. It was in the 2020-21 season that his skills blossomed. Foden scored 16 goals and 10 assists in 50 games in all competitions.
He was also very active last season. He scored 14 goals and 11 assists in 45 appearances in all competitions. Due to his performance, he won the English Premier League (EPL) ‘Young Player of the Year’ award for the 2021-22 season. Awarded two seasons in a row. 카지노사이트
Naturally, his ransom also skyrocketed. Based on the soccer statistics media ‘TransferMarkt’, Foden’s ransom value is 110 million euros (approximately 159 billion won), ranking fifth in the world. The only players rated higher than Foden are Kylian Mbappe (PSG), Erling Haaland (Man City), Jude Bellingham (Dortmund) and Vinicius Junior (Real Madrid).
That’s why Foden plays a significant role in Manchester City. However, he underwent surgery at a critical moment. He underwent appendectomy during the March A match. At the time, ahead of the head-to-head match against Liverpool, Guardiola broke the news of his absence, saying “Foden had an appendectomy, and the doctor said he would be out for two or three weeks.” As a result, Foden missed league matches against Liverpool, Southampton and Leicester City, and failed to play in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) quarterfinals against Munich.
Fortunately, he returned to training ahead of the championship competition. Starting with the second leg against Munich on the 21st, Man City is set to face Sheffield United in the English FA Cup semifinals and Arsenal in the 33rd round of the English Premier League (EPL). In particular, since they played one game less than Arsenal and the difference in points is 4 points, the winner of the head-to-head could have an advantage in winning the championship. In this situation, Foden will return and add strength.
