Guardiola: Nobody trusts Foden more than me

first_imgPep Guardiola has insisted that nobody trusts Phil Foden more than he does after the Manchester City youngster capped an impressive Champions League display with a red card against Atalanta.The 19-year-old made just his second start of the season in the Citizens’ Group C clash with the Serie A outfit at the Etihad Stadium, impressing in midfield as his side ran out 5-1 victors courtesy of goals from Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero.Foden was instrumental in setting up the former’s opener for his hat-trick, but saw his terrific performance brought to a premature end after he picked up two bookings in the space of six minutes during the closing stages.

Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career Speaking in his post-match press conference however, Guardiola was effusive in his praise for Foden, stating that the teenager has his manager’s full backing and belief.”He doesn’t need to prove anything to me,” the Spaniard stated. “He would not be here with us.“I was the guy who said to him in the academy come here to play with us. There is nobody who trusts Phil more than me. I’m the boss, I decide [who plays].”We thought it was a game he would have more opportunities to run, on the counter-attack. “Phil has these qualities to be box-to-box, at speed. That was the reason why he played, a tactical decision.”He’s a young guy, still a lot to improve. But it is important. Last season in one of the biggest games we had he played against Tottenham, he played so good and today as well.”Every minute he plays, more experience for him for his future. He played at a high level.”Guardiola did, however, add Foden still has plenty to learn, acknowledging his frustration at the midfielder’s red card.”He will learn,” Guardiola said. “Never fine for the player [to get sent off], unless it is for a stupid thing not something that is part of the game.”He will know after one yellow card you have to be a bit more careful. There are things still where his is far away from David [Silva], far away from [Ilkay] Gundogan and far away from Kevin [De Bruyne].”He has to live this situation with a yellow card and be careful.”There will be no punishment from Guardiola for Foden’s indiscipline, though.”Absolutely, I will not fine him. Maybe I have to pay him for how well he played,” Guardiola said.last_img read more

DPR Korea facing worst food crisis since late 1990s UN

“Millions of vulnerable North Koreans are at risk of slipping towards precarious hunger levels,” Jean-Pierre de Margerie, Country Director for the UN World Food Programme (WFP) tolda news conference in Beijing today.“The last time hunger was so deep and so widespread in parts of the country was in the late 1990s,” he added.A three-week Rapid Food Security Assessment (RFSA), conducted jointly by WFP and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in June, found that food production in DPRK has sharply dropped alongside declining food imports.The drop in production, due to flooding in August 2007 and successive poor harvests, combined with high prices for staple foods have led to the largest food gap since 2001. Covering 53 counties in eight provinces, the study was the most comprehensive assessment on food and nutrition conducted in DPRK since 2004. Among the key findings are that food availability, accessibility and utilization have deteriorated sharply since 2007, and that close to three quarters of households have reduced their food intake.In addition, more malnourished and ill children are being admitted to hospitals and institutions, and diarrhoea caused by increased consumption of wild foods was one of the leading causes of malnutrition among children under the age of five.Compounding the situation is the surge in food prices. Rice now costs almost three times more than a year ago, and maize has quadrupled.“We’ve found that many more people are now scavenging for wild foods which provide little nourishment and are difficult to digest. Food assistance to reach the hungry is urgently needed,” said Mr. de Margerie.WFP has urgently expanded food distributions to reach 6.4 million – from the current 1.2 million it was already assisting – of the country’s 23 million people. It is also planning a new $500 million operation to target the most vulnerable women, children and elderly people in eight of the country’s ten provinces. The two remaining provinces, Chagang and North Phyongan, will be covered by a parallel food aid operation run by United States non-governmental organizations (NGOs). 30 July 2008A new United Nations assessment has found that millions of people in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) are experiencing the worst food crisis in almost a decade, owing to successive poor harvests coupled with soaring food prices. read more
