English speedster Jadon Sancho has revealed the wise words of advice he has received from Dortmund legend Marco Reus.
Jadon Sancho joined the Dortmund based club a couple of seasons back after failing to make the cut at Manchester City. However, at Dortmund he has been able to express himself brilliantly and is one of their top players.
He began the season in great pace but has lost ground recently and Sancho revealed that Reus has warned him against slacking off.
“The players at Dortmund give me loads of advice because they’re so experienced. Marco Reus is a great player and he keeps telling me that I need to keep working hard in training because someone can take your place at any time,” the youngster told The Independent.
“I really listen to that because I believe what he says. There’s always someone below you who wants to take your position. If you work hard week in and week out it makes it hard for them to get picked instead of you. Soccer’s very competitive and you can’t afford to slacken off,” he added.
“Moving abroad is different for individuals and it depends on their personality. My situation is that I’ve always been away from home since I was 11. It’s about how you handle situations by yourself. There’ll be many days when it’s difficult. It’s not for everyone. But it’s a good option. You’ve just got to make sure you get the decisions right if you do make the move,” he concluded.
