Roy Keane reveals why Phil Foden will stay at the top level for longer than he did as he makes Ronaldo’s comparison.

Roy Keane reveals why Phil Foden will stay at the top level for longer than he did as he makes Ronaldo’s comparison.

Roy Keane tipped Phil Foden to play at the top for much longer than he did – backing the Manchester City prodigy to follow Cristiano Ronaldo by dominating into his late 30s.

Foden could play a key role in England’s 2020 bid, having starred as City reclaimed the Premier League crown this season.

The 21-year-old has now won three domestic trophies, although he still has some way to go to equal the trophy haul Keane accumulated during 12 years with Manchester United.

Keane won seven top-flight crowns, four FA Cups, and the Champions League with Sir Alex Ferguson’s side, before joining Celtic in 2005 and finally withdrawing the following year, aged 34.

But he guesses Foden will be playing at the highest level for much longer due to his commitment to the game – as he confessed to chowing down on a kebab hours before a significant United match.

“I saw Foden getting interviewed the other day, he was on about cooking,” Keane said to Micah Richards in the Sky Sports duo’s Road to Wembley series.

“He said ‘No, I’ve got a chef.’

“He’s got a chef! Foden’s fueling up properly. He’s probably having a proper breakfast.”

Keane then connected Foden to his former team-mate Ronaldo, who is still playing at the top aged 36 and was Serie A’s top marksman this summer after banging in 29 league goals for Juventus.

“He’s recovering, he’s eating the proper foods at the right times – look at Ronaldo,” he told Richards.

“So Foden will get the benefits also when he’s 36, 37. Guarantee he’ll still be playing at a high level.”

Keane had ex-City defender Richards in hysterics as he analyzed today’s plans with those of his own playing days, when he shoved himself with a kebab because he “didn’t have any food in the house”.

“I played a cup game before Crystal Palace at home and three hours before the game I had a kebab,” said Keane.

“A doner kebab from the chipper. Three hours before the game.

“When you’re younger you get away with it, but obviously you pay for it 

later on. You think you’re getting away with it, having a bit of a laugh about it and being a jack the lad.

“In fairness though I did live by myself and I didn’t have any food in the house.”
