Phil Foden claims that his fellow footballers, including teammates at Manchester City, don't really understand his 'odd hobby.'
On the football pitch, there are few players who have the ability to do what Foden does, when he's at his best, and even fewer of those who are 22-years-old.
Such is his brilliance, and potential to be even better, that it's been claimed that he is the Messiah, and even has more potential than Lionel Messi had, which may be a bit of a stretch.
Ahead of last year's World Cup, Foden did tell SPORTbible his performances in an England shirt could be better, and he certainly upped them during the tournament.
However, since returning from the tournament his form has dipped, which is something that Pep Guardiola actually predicted would happen.
Whilst the manager understands that part of the Stockport born forward's life, he may be one of several who doesn't get Foden's hobby of choice.
Speaking to the City website, the player revealed he loves fishing, saying, "Probably about 95% of the football lads don’t enjoy it.
"The odd one likes fishing, so when people find out they say: ‘what a weird sport to enjoy’. They don’t understand why you enjoy it.
"Obviously, they need to go and try it. I think it’s the perfect hobby to rest your legs and have some down time.”
The 22-year-old also stated that his Dad got him into fishing at a young age, with the pair still very much enjoying the pastime.
In fact, according to Foden, they regularly embark on trips across the UK and even Spain to set their lines in new waters.
He even missed the club's celebrations when they won the Premier League in 2018, due to a pre planned trip between the pair, that the star stuck too.
Foden has been out injured of the previous two games for Guardiola's side, although could return to the fold for the game against Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend.
They'll be looking for a big win against Antonio Conte's team, as they continue to attempt to keep pressure on league leaders Arsenal, with more predictions now claiming they won't do it.
Win or lose, you'll probably find Foden fishing somewhere come the end of the season.
