The midfielder has stuck with 47 from when he made his senior debut coming on as a substitute for midfield machine Yaya Toure in 2017.

The touching reason behind the number 47 is that it reportedly acts as a permanent tribute for Foden’s grandfather Ronnie, who passed away at age 47.

And it solidifies his family bond with Manchester City as it has been claimed that Ronnie was an avid City fan growing up.
