Schalke Winger Rabbi Matondo believes Jadon Sancho is on his way to achieving great heights.
Matondo grew up with Sancho at Manchester City and ever since Sancho made the decision to move to Borussia Dortmund, he has only impressed. Matondo states that he always knew Sancho was going to make it big as a player and believes he can only go up from here.
“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.
