Phil Foden: A meteoric rise

‘Phil FootHe is one of us” sings the terrace – and it is clear that from the start Foot and City proved a match made in heaven.

The bond between a young local playing for the team he grew up supporting and the fans is always a very special one.

For supporters, they see their own dreams come true on the pitch by someone who feels close to them. For the player, it is the realization of a lifelong ambition.

Phil Foot did just that and more.

From being a ball boy at the Etihad to the linchpin of City’s creative set, his journey has been straight out of a Hollywood script.

What else, Foot did it the hard way, having to work his way through a squad brimming with world-class quality from top to bottom.

Born and raised in Stockport, Phil’s exceptional natural abilities, dogged attitude and approach propelled him to the top from the moment he joined our Academy as a young lad.

And when Pep Guardiola was appointed as City boss in the summer of 2016, director of football Txiki Begiristain immediately alerted the new boss to the extra talent that was being cultivated in our academy.

This ability was demonstrated to surprising effect during our US tour in the summer of 2017 when Foot produced a rather dazzling performance against Manchester United.

City may have been beaten 2-0 in Houston – but the real victory came in the form of Footextraordinary display of who illustrated what a rare talent he was.

And it elicited a memorable reaction from Pep – accustomed to recognizing exceptional quality.


“It’s been a long time since I’ve seen something like this. His performance was on another level. He’s 17, he’s a City player, he grew up at the academy, he loves the club , he’s a City fan – for us it’s a gift. Guardiola declared. “He’s special.”

The dice were cast.

After becoming England’s shining star at the 2017 Under-17 World Cup, helping the Junior Lions lift the trophy, being voted Player of the Tournament and winning the Ballon d’Or, FootThe impact of was quickly felt at club level as well.

Foot made his City debut in November 2017, replacing Yaya Toure as a late substitute against Feyenoord. Two weeks later, it was a first start against Shakhtar Donetsk, which saw Phil become the youngest English player, aged 17 years and 192 days, to start in a Champions League game – and the first player born in the 2000s to do then.

By the end of that 2017/18 season, he had become the Premier League’s youngest ever winner, having played five times, earning him a winner’s medal.

The 2018/19 campaign saw City become the first team to win a clean sweep of every major English domestic trophy, and Foot notch a series of notable firsts.

He netted his first-ever goal at senior level in our 3-0 Carabao Cup win at Oxford in September 2018 and followed that up with an Etihad first strike in a 7-0 FA Cup win over Rotherham in January 2019.

A first European goal in our 7-0 victory over Schalke in a second leg in the Round of 16 Foot becoming both the youngest player to score for City in the Champions League and the youngest English player to score in a knockout stage of the competition.

He also netted a crucial Premier League debut goal in our decisive 1-0 win over Tottenham in April 2019 as City ended a historic season with an unprecedented sweep of all major English domestic trophies.

FootThe influence and impact of was further strengthened in a 2019-20 season which saw him become even more of a pivotal figure.

He played 38 games in all competitions and was directly involved in 17 goals (eight goals and nine assists).

Foot also produced a man of the match at Wembley as City won a third straight Carabao Cup, beating Aston Villa 2-1 to become the youngest recipient of the Alan Hardaker Trophy.

The 2020/21 campaign saw Foot getting better and better and taking on even more responsibility after the departure of club legend David Silva, a player he idolized and respected.

Foot was exceptional from the start in what proved to be a relentless and demanding season played in the difficult context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He started as he wanted to continue scoring in our impressive 3-1 league win over Wolves and never looked back.

Foot emerged as one of the driving forces as City regained the Premier League in spectacular fashion, and was also instrumental in another League Cup triumph as well as our first Champions League final appearance.

In all, Foot scored 50 appearances, contributing 16 goals and 10 assists.

He ended the domestic campaign being voted PFA Young Player of the Year and Premier League Young Player of the Season and was also named in the UEFA Champions League Team of the Season.

Foot proved once again crucial throughout the 2021/22 campaign as GuardiolaThe Liverpool side pulled off the formidable feat of retaining the Premier League title in the face of a fierce challenge from Liverpool.

The England international produced a host of memorable individual displays and finished the campaign having amassed 14 goals and 11 assists.

Foot also achieved the notable double of being voted Premier League Young Player of the Season and PFA Young Player of the Year again. He was also among the nominees for the prestigious Balon d’Or award.

He has already won 11 top honors and has made 182 appearances for City so far, scoring 52 goals. In terms of natural talent and ability, few players can match him.

But arguably the brilliant essence of the young man and player is that he never forgot those entrenched and humble roots.

“I still have family around Stockport, so I go visit sometimes, and the kids are just amazed to see me,” Phil said. “It’s kind of weird because I was one of those kids and I was like them. They look up to you, so it’s just to give something back, because I used to play there growing up.

“It’s good to play with them and see a smile on their face.”

In the wake of his new contract, Foot should bring more joy and fun to the faithful of the city in the coming seasons.
