Ravel Morrison calls Phil Foden's comparison with Man Utd legend Wayne Rooney 'silly' after fan sparks debate

RAVEL MORRISON has branded comparisons between Phil Foden and Wayne Rooney ‘silly’.

Fans went online debating whether they would prefer the Manchester City star or Man United legend in their team.


Foden, 21, is regarded as one of the best youngsters in world football.

He already has 38 goals in 144 games for City, as well as three Premier League titles to his name.

And Foden has also emerged as a key figure in Gareth Southgate’s England plans, winning 10 caps last year.

Meanwhile, Derby manager Rooney, 36, scored 253 goals in 559 games for United.

He landed five Premier League titles and one Champions League while also becoming the club’s leading goalscorer of all time.

Former England skipper Rooney also won 120 caps for his country, scoring 53 goals in the process.

Plenty of fans appeared to agree with Morrison’s take on the debate too.

One said: “You tell them Ravel!”

Another noted: “Shouldn’t even be a debate.”

One added: “This must be a joke, Rooney clear by a mile.”
