Pep Guardiola has backed Phil Foden to shine at Manchester City.
“Maybe (he will play more),” he said. “He can play – there are no doubts about that.
“He is ready; he will play Wednesday and is ready.
“I count all of them. I take decisions. I know how it works.
“No-one mentioned Phil after we won at Burnley!
“His time is coming and we will see in the next games.”
“In that moment, Angelino plays better than the other ones in this position,” he said.
“After two years injured, you are not fit. He (Mendy) needs time.”
Asked whether he feels City need to rebuild in the upcoming transfer windows, Guardiola replied: “I like the team. We have little details we need to come back.
“It’s not just me – the Club needs to give an opinion as well.
“I like my players. This season, we cannot repeat the previous two – the results speak for themselves.
“It’s the first time (I have been 14 points behind). As a player, maybe; as a manager, no.
“The reality is: we are 14 points behind because of our mistakes and the quality of the opponent and things we can’t control.
“We have to continue. We have other competitions to play. Maybe this will help us in the future to be better.
