The 19-year-old, along with Manchester United whizkid Mason Greenwood, was was sent home by Gareth Southgate after they were caught inviting women to his room whilst on international duty in Iceland.

"He is well. The time I saw him, these three, four days we worked together. He knows he made a mistake and that's all," Guardiola told the media.

"I am pretty sure Phil is going to make a good season. He knows he made a mistake. Stop giving too much advice to other people.

"If every one of us put the same high expectations on ourselves as we put on others, it would be better.

"Stop giving advice to the other ones, look at what you have done in the past and when you demand to the other ones, and stick to what you have to [do], our society will be better."
