PHIL FODEN has confirmed that he will miss a MONTH of action for Manchester City with a foot injury.
The City ace confirmed that he picked up the injury just days before England's Euro 2020 final against Italy.
Foden hasn't managed to get away for a break from football as he's working hard to get back fit.
He told Sky Sports: "Obviously I had a little girl recently and I've had an injury as well, so unfortunately I didn't get away.
"But, you know, I've stayed here and tried to get back fit and hopefully I can be back on the pitch soon."
And when he was asked on how his foot is and the timescale he's expected to be out for, Foden revealed he's hoping to only be out for "three to four weeks more".
He continued: "It's still a little bit sore (the foot), you know, it's such a shame to do it just before the Euro final.
"It was really unfortunate but, you know, I'm working hard in the gym and yeah, hopefully I can get back soon as possible.
"(On return) I would say around three to four weeks more, so hopefully it flies by and I can just get back on the pitch."
The month-long injury will keep Foden out of action until the next international break next month, meaning he will miss City's first three Premier League matches.

City take on Tottenham on Sunday in their league opener, followed by Norwich and then Arsenal.
British transfer record holder Jack Grealish could be handed a start in Foden's absence, giving the £100million man time to shine.
Foden will also most likely miss England's World Cup qualifiers against Hungary, Andorra and Poland.
