WONDERKID Phil Foden has revealed the Manchester derby causes a huge divide in his household... because his father is a United fan.

The Man City superstar, 20, has hit new heights this season with Pep Guardiola embedding the youngster in his first team.

But his career could have panned out in the colours of United's red had his father got his own way.

Foden was picked out by a Man City scout as a kid while impressing in the playground of his school in Stockport.

The rest is history but Foden recalled the moment he told his old man he was now a Man City supporter.

Speaking to Four Four Two, he said: "Obviously going to train with City made me a fan straight away.

“I told my dad that I wanted to be a City fan and he replied, ‘OK’, but I could see in his face that he was a bit disappointed.

"I think he saw it coming, though, once I was training with them.

“When derby days came around, it was me and my mum supporting City, then my dad and my brother supporting United – arguing and debating about who was going to win.

“But since I’ve been in City’s first team and it’s been me against United, I think I’m turning him slowly into a City fan – he’s not as interested in United as he used to be!”

Foden has been sensational this season, scoring five and assisting three in 11 Prem starts.

But undoubtedly his crowning moment came on Sunday in City's emphatic 4-1 win over Liverpool.

Foden assisted Ilkay Gundogan and scored a stunning strike with his left-foot which had shades of Lionel Messi.

And AS write how Guardiola is using Foden just like he did with the Argentine superstar during his time as Barcelona boss.

The Spaniard started Foden as a false nine in the win over Liverpool before switching him out on to the left.

It was similar to a Barca game in 2009 when Guardiola did the same tactic with Messi in a 6-2 win over Real Madrid.

Body of ‘hero’ Brit dad, 51, who dived into lake to rescue son on Italy holiday found after more than three weeks

THE body of a "hero" Brit dad who dived into a lake to save his son has been found more than three weeks after he vanished.

Aran Chada, 51, leapt into the water in Italy's Lake Garda after spotting his teenage lad in trouble swimming on July 22.

His family feared him dead as he failed to resurface after helping his son onto a boat.

They believed oil executive Aran, from Leicestershire, had a seizure from the shock of the cold water before disappearing beneath the surface.

The Italian Coastguard said his body was found on Tuesday, more than three weeks on in "more or less in the area" where he was last seen following an extensive search using underwater drones.

A Guardia Costiera spokesman said: "the drowning was probably caused by an illness following the rescue that Mr Chada had carried out on the first child, who was in danger."

Aran was on holiday with his partner Holly Mosley, 39, and their two kids, aged 14 and seven, when tragedy struck.

The family had rented the boat at the start of their holiday to celebrate Aran’s birthday.

A witness said: “He managed to get the boy back to the boat, where he was pulled in by his mother.

"But the man then slipped beneath the surface, perhaps suffering a seizure.”

His wife raised the alarm - sparking a huge rescue operation involving police, a helicopter and naval and firefighter dive teams equipped with sonar and remote-operated vehicles.

After Aran disappeared, Holly’s visibly shaken brother James told The Sun: “It's devastating. What my sister and the family is going through is unimaginable.”

The coastguard, in comments first reported in The Times, previously said Mr Chada may have suffered a thermal shock seizure.

Temperatures were around 38C but the water was "a good 10 degrees colder".

Speaking at the time, coastguard commander Antonello Ragadale told the paper: "This man was a hero and we fear he drowned, but we're doing everything we can to find his body."

The Foreign Office said in a statement: "We are supporting the family of a British man who has died in North Italy and are in contact with the local authorities."

It comes after six people tragically drowned in Lake Garda within a month.
