Phil Foden spotted for first time after mum attacked at boxing as he leaves Man City training in chauffeur-driven Merc

PHIL FODEN was spotted for the first time since his mum was punched at the boxing last weekend.

The Three Lions midfielder was seen in the back of a Mercedes leaving Manchester City's training ground on Wednesday afternoon.


Foden got back to business days after his mum was attacked backstage at Amir Khan's fight against Kell Brook in Manchester.

Shocking footage revealed by The Sun – and now being probed by cops – showed how Claire Foden was attacked after a group of men called her son a "c***".

The England and Man City ace, 21, was seen trying to fend off the yobs – while another man was seen using a fire extinguisher as a weapon.

A witness described the scenes as “complete mayhem” and revealed the fight was actually worse than it seemed. The footage has been widely shared on social media.

He told The Sun: "It was carnage. It was out of control. I've never seen anything like it before in my life.

"I was in the next box and heard all the shouting and screaming so we went out to see what was happening.

"It was crazy. Everyone was saying Phil Foden was there.

"I saw a punch thrown. There was more violence than just what was caught on film.

"Another man got punched after the footage came to an end. He was bleeding.

"It was all kicking off. It lasted a few more minutes.

"Security were called at one point and a lot of people ended up getting kicked out. It was unreal.

"It was like a scene from the Wild West."

The clip, which was filmed in a corridor of Manchester's AO Arena, begins with Foden appearing to be goaded following City's 3-2 defeat to Spurs earlier in the day.

Reacting to the thugs, the footballer's girlfriend Rebecca Cooke turns and shouts: "Who you calling a c***?"



The couple then walk into a private room at the arena following Khan's bloody defeat by Kell Brook.

Foden's mum Claire is then seen walking out and asks the group: "Right, who's calling him?"

One of the men replies: "No one."

Claire says: "Right, then f*** off."

She appears to push out at a man in a black jacket, forcing him back several steps, before the attacker steps in and takes a swing at her.

It's not clear if the blow connects, but the 41-year-old reels back and a man in a black baseball hat steps in and punches out in her defence.
