Phil Foden reveals message on Man City's training ground wall after Real Madrid exit

Phil Foden reveals message on Man City's training ground wall after Real Madrid exit

Foden and his City teammates know what they need to do.

Phil Foden has revealed the message written on Manchester City's training ground wall that will spur the team on for the rest of the season.

City suffered their first major disappointment of the season this week as they bowed out of the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola's side held ambitions of winning the treble for a second season in a row, but those hopes were dashed when Real Madrid beat them on penalties after their Champions League quarter-final tie ended 4-4 on aggregate.

City will now focus their attention on domestic matters, and they still have a great chance of making history.

City are two wins from successfully defending their FA Cup crown, with Chelsea their opponents in Saturday's semi-final at Wembley.

Cole Palmer, who rose through the ranks in East Manchester before joining Chelsea last summer, will look to cause City's second cup exit in the space of 72 hours.

Then there is the small matter of the Premier League title race.

City are currently top of the pile and are on track to be crowned champions for a fourth successive year, but Liverpool and Arsenal are just two points behind them with six games left to play.

No team has even won the Premier League four seasons in a row, but City's stars believe they can do it.

According to Phil Foden, a message on the training ground wall reminds him and his teammates of the challenge every single day.

"We know if we win the Premier League this time we will have done something new. It’s something we have our eyes on," Foden told the Daily Mail.

"Every time we put our boots on at the training ground that saying is there on the wall.

"It says: 'Nobody has won four Premier Leagues in a row…yet'.

"We want to put ourselves in history. Every day I sit and look at that slogan and I think: 'Why not?'."

City's cup involvement means they are not in league action again until Thursday - when they travel to Brighton - by which time Liverpool and Arsenal will have played two games more each and could be four points clear of the defending champions.
