Man City boss Guardiola: Foden won't leave - not even for €500M

MY PEOPLE Phil has a bright future

Cape Town - Manchester City are reportedly poised to hand a new contract to defensive midfielder Fernandinho, with his current deal set to expire at the end of the season.

City insiders, however, have revealed the club are planning to sit down with the 34-year-old after the busy festive period of fixtures and are confident they can agree on a deal which now suits all parties.

Yet there's only one player who Man City manager Pep Guardiola says he wouldn't ever sell. "Never my teams are focused on making something wrong for the opponents", said Guardiola.

"Although they've played a lot of games it won't be the physical side that catches up with them, it will be the mental side. It's never happened in my career and never will happen in my career because I understand the game in a different approach".

Rodri acknowledged he plays in an important position on the pitch, but is relishing the responsibility. "I didn't have this exact role in the team". "David, you didn't give us enough running".


"I am learning new things, how to go, when to stay, when I have to do a tactical foul, when I have to jump. And for the team it's good because we need those offensive players to be able to play our game".

The German has masterminded the best period at Liverpool since the 1980s, tuning them into European champions, and hopefully, soon-to-be Premier League winners.

With neighbours Manchester United struggling, Rodri was asked if Jurgen Klopp's Reds should now be considered City's main rivals.

Tottenham, Manchester United and Manchester City have yet to meet expectations, while Liverpool top the table as they haven't dropped a single point so far.

Winning two in a row is not an exceptional achievement but it speaks to how Liverpool have not had a consistently excellent side over the last 14 years.
