Manchester City star Phil Foden has named N’Golo Kante as his toughest-ever opponent.

Foden’s rise under Pep Guardiola ‘s watchful eye at City has been sensational and the 20-year-old boasts a remarkable trophy haul for such a young player after winning four League Cups, one FA Cup, two Community Shields and four Premier League titles.

The dynamic playmaker-turned-forward has come up against some of the world’s best players this term, and it’s a Chelsea player that he’s named as his toughest opponent, with the pair set to rekindle their rivalry on May 29 in Porto.
