Graeme Souness has criticised Phil Foden, claiming Manchester City man has a lot to learn after the club’s Premier League match against Southampton.

Souness believes that Foden’s error saw the Saints Kyle Walker-Peters scoring a goal and helping his side to play a 1 – 1 draw with the Citizens.

“(Oriol) Romeu switches play here to Kyle Walker-Peters. Foden is tucked in where he should be, he’s come right across and says to Cancelo, ‘I’ve got this covered,’ and he jogs and he continues to jog,” the pundit said on Sky Sports (via MEN).

“Kyle Walker-Peters comes in front of him and he just gives up.

“He’ll get a rollicking for that.

“That’s hard yards that senior pros just do because they’re in automatic gear, it’s just something you do without thinking.

“He has proved today he’s still got to learn about doing the hard yards. You can’t hold your hand up and say, ‘I’ve got this covered,’ then leave your team like that.”
