Joe Hart names the possible successor to David Silva at Manchester City

Former Manchester City star Joe Hart believes Phil Foden has the credentials to succeed David Silva once the latter ends his association with the Premier League holders. Silva has already confirmed that he would be leaving the Citizens at the end of the campaign and this has spread speculation that the reigning champions could pursue a replacement from elsewhere.

However, speaking on Sky Sports, Hart has stated that the Citizens don’t need to look for an outside replacement and believes Foden should be handed with a regular starting spot next term, he told: “We all want to see Phil Foden play, but he doesn’t have to prove anything. He’s got Man City and Pep Guardiola, they believe in him. He doesn’t need to go out and have a season somewhere else and play some sort of different system.
