Former teammate of Jadon Sancho talks about the highly-rated young winger of Borussia Dortmund.

Jadon Sancho

’s story is quite inspiring. He was playing in

Manchester City

’s academy and no one was sure if he can make it to the first team or not. He looked like any other English player but he opened a path which many young English talents followed. He went to Germany, played brilliantly for

Dortmund

, and became a key player for either his team and the national team.

Sancho was highly wanted by English giant, Manchester United but no agreement was made. Since then Sancho is not playing his best football.

Matondo

who followed the same path as Sancho and is currently playing fo

Schalke

talks about his relationship with Dortmund’s winger.

“With the pandemic and the situation we’re in, we tend to stay apart. We do speak now and then,”

Matondo told talkSPORT of his former City colleague.

“He’s doing very well and I’m proud of him, and I always believed he would do what he’s doing, because he’s always had that ability [since] being with him at Manchester City.

“It’s helped me having him here, because before I came – and he knew I was coming – we had a good long chat about everything here and what Germany is like and he gave me confidence that I could start to achieve what he’s achieving.

“He’s doing well. It’s an aim for me to start pushing and helping Schalke and hopefully I can do that.

“Everyone that knows Jadon and grew up around him or played with him knew how talented he is. You never ever questioned his talent. When you know football and you see Jadon play, you know already that, if he can keep his head and do the right things both on and off the field, he can have a top career and he’s proving that right now.
