Southgate explains to me why Foden isn’t suitable to play as a midfielder.

  • Southgate doesn’t think Foden is suitable to play as a central midfielder.
  • Southgate has spoken with Pep Guardiola.

Gareth Southgate, England national team manager Denied the possibility of sending Phil Foden to play in the central midfield position.

There have calls for the Manchester City star to move to central midfield. However, Southgate thinks Foden should be a wide player. After talking with Pep Guardiola

“He didn’t play that position for the club. So there’s probably a good reason for this. It depends on the level of the game,” Southgate said.

“In midfield, everyone wants to talk about your time with the ball. But there are a lot of details without the ball and games where you have to focus on the pressing angle. If you can’t You won’t be able to make the game flow smoothly.”

“You have to talk to Pep, who is the best coach in the world, who plays Foden wide. He has the freedom to carry the ball if we play him wide and that’s important.”

“We’re very happy with Phil. He played in the Euros, came in the Euro semi-finals and had a huge impact, played in the World Cup for us. He’s only 23 years old, has great experience. Very amazed” Report from ยูฟ่าเบท
