Manchester City attacker Foden reveals Dad wanted him to play for Man Utd

Manchester City star Phil Foden admits his father is a Manchester United supporter.

The 20-year-old came through the youth setup at City and is now shining in Pep Guardiola's first team.

But Foden could have gone to United if he had listened to his father as a youngster.

Speaking to Four Four Two, he said: "Obviously going to train with City made me a fan straight away.

"I told my dad that I wanted to be a City fan and he replied, 'OK', but I could see in his face that he was a bit disappointed.

"I think he saw it coming, though, once I was training with them.

"When derby days came around, it was me and my mum supporting City, then my dad and my brother supporting United – arguing and debating about who was going to win.

"But since I've been in City's first team and it's been me against United, I think I'm turning him slowly into a City fan – he's not as interested in United as he used to be!"
