Foden: “I don't try to copy anyone but I like to learn from people."

Phil Foden has expressed his delight at being a Manchester City player and also revealed he is learning a lot from senior players like David Silva and Vincent Kompany.

The 18-year-old midfield ace, who has become a key member in Pep Guardiola's starting line-up in cup competitions, says “it’s a dream” to be playing for the Citizens.

"It's a dream," Foden told the Daily Mail. "I've been a City fan from young and I've watched these players growing up as well. To play with them and see what they do every day, to learn off them - it's special. I just enjoy it every day, being there and learning from them.

"David is always giving me advice, it's one little thing. He says just to know your time on the ball and things like that. He will always help you out.

"He'll say 'Oh, you could have set the ball there instead of turning'. It's just listening to him. Everyone is good with that; Vincent Kompany is the same.

"I liked to watch Spanish teams at home when I was younger. I don't try to copy anyone but I like to learn from people."

The City teenager added: "Hopefully I bring something different to the team but there is a lot of quality in every position.

"People say you're a bit different and it's a good thing so I'm just trying to help the team and do well for them. I've been working in the gym quite hard, just little things, not too much.

"You don't need to be too big as a footballer, you just need that little bit on you."
