Kalvin Phillips gives young England fan moment he'll never forget, he's a class act

Kalvin Phillips has had a tough start at Manchester City

Manchester City star Kalvin Phillips has given a young England fan a moment he will never forget.

Midfielder Phillips has had a tough start to life as a City player after failing to impress when given the opportunities to play ahead of Rodri.

However, despite his lack of game time under Pep Guardiola, England boss Gareth Southgate has continued to pick him for international duty.

Ahead of the match against Australia, Phillips shared a wholesome moment with a young fan. You can watch the footage below.

When signing autographs at England’s St. George’s Park training base, Phillips was asked to partake in a game of Rock, Paper Scissors by a young fan who was trying to get his hands on the player's training shirt.

Phillips ended up winning the game but proceeded to take off his training top and handed it to the fan.

The video was posted on social media with a caption that read: “Kalvin Phillips definitely gets it. We had the privilege of going to meet the England players after training at St George’s Park & @Kalvinphillips made sure FBB young person Mlu had a moment he’ll never forget.

“Shout out @nikefootball & @england for the amazing opportunity!”

Speaking about Phillips’ struggles at City, Guardiola recently said: “Marcelo [Bielsa] gave Kalvin the best of Kalvin in his career.

“I'd love to have done with Kalvin what Marcelo has done to him. We have our own specific way to play and [he] sometimes struggles in a few things, while the previous [Leeds playing style] was perfect [for him].”


He continued: “The club spoke with him because he did not have many minutes. He said 'no, I want to stay'.

“We brought Kalvin here for his quality. He is open minded, always wants to learn and wants to help. This is what we want to try to do.”

As a result of his lack of minutes, Phillips has attracted interest from the likes of Newcastle United and Everton ahead of the January transfer window.
