Manchester City midfielder, Phil Foden, was named the Football Writers’ Association (FWA) Men’s Footballer of the Year

Foden is tipped as one of Pep Guardiola’s most potent attacking threats this season as they look to become the first team to win the Premier League title four times in a row.

The 23-year-old City academy graduate has scored 24 goals and registered 10 assists in all competitions so far this season, as he has taken up more central positions on the pitch to help the team navigate the absence of Kevin De Bruyne through injury.

Foden won the award with a 42% share of the votes casted by FWA members and becomes the third City player in the last four years to have been named men’s Footballer of the Year after defender Rúben Dias won the award in 2021 and forward Erling Haaland last season.

He saw off competition from another City teammate Rodri and Arsenal midfielder Declan Rice to win the prestigious award.
