Manchester City will have to learn to live without Phil Foden for a while longer with the playmaker set for another month out injured.
Foden, 21, missed England’s Euro 2020 final at Wembley against Italy due to a disruptive foot injury.
It appears he is still getting to grips with the issue as the Telegraph report that Foden is expected to be out of action until after next month’s international break.
Foden is said to have flexed his foot during a training session with England in the build-up to the Italy final, which the Three Lions lost on penalties.
City’s medical staff, according to the report, viewed the injury as ‘unusual’ and are keen to err on the side of caution in bringing him back into the side.
Boss Pep Guardiola himself expressed that City must be patient with the Stockport-born playmaker or they risk aggravating it and causing further damage.
If Foden does sit out until the international break he would miss the first three games of City’s Premier League title defence.
Guardiola’s side take on Tottenham in their opening match on Sunday before they face Norwich City and Arsenal.
City’s game against Leicester on September 11 is being viewed as a potential return to the side for Foden.
