Phil Foden applauds Julian Alvarez’s spectacular season at Manchester City
Manchester City’s Phil Foden praised teammate Julian Alvarez’s incredible season after a spectacular 87th-minute winner against RB Leipzig on Tuesday night.
In an exclusive post-match interview with TNT Sports, Foden expressed awe at Alvarez’s influence, as the 23-year-old Argentine dynamo came off the bench to orchestrate City’s thrilling 3-2 Champions League victory.
“You know Julian’s a great player and he’s always a threat when he comes off the bench. He’s a fantastic player and he always makes a difference for us. He’s having a brilliant season and he’s important for us”, Foden told TNT Sports.
Alvarez has become the centerpiece for the squad this season, with an excellent aggregate of eight goals and six assists across all competitions.
Many share Foden’s appreciation for Alvarez’s remarkable form, with football analyst Peter Crouch claiming that Alvarez would fit in with any other Premier League squad.
Recognizing Alvarez’s outstanding attitude, even Sky Blues insiders, as stated by Fabrizio Romano in late October, are reportedly happy with the Argentine’s dedication.
The former River Plate striker’s impact in the Champions League has been nothing short of stunning. Alvarez, the competition’s equal second-highest goalscorer, has been the catalyst for important moments, creating match-winning goals and decisive assists, securing his status as an opponent to be reckoned with on the European stage.
