The style of play, the development and comparisons
Foden is left-footed and is capable of playing as a wing-back or an winger in the right, although Pep Guardiola has said that he is “more of a midfielder”. In 2017 Guardiola declared him “a special player”, noting: “It’s dangerous to say that young players are good since they’re still young and need to develop and to master a variety of aspects… However, we have a lot of faith in him to assist as we believe that the player has potential, even though you don’t think he’s strong or certainly not big.” The year 2017 Louise Taylor of The Guardian wrote about Foden as “boasting the ability to control his ball with aplomb and gifted with the ability of speeding through opponents”. In the year 2018 the veteran football writer Brian Glanville described him as an “gifted and precocious teenager” and said: “Young players of his skill and inventive quality are pitifully thin on the ground.” While at Manchester City, he was often employed as a central attacker as an unofficial 9 by the manager Pep Guardiola.
