After four years with the club, following a move from Ajax, Javairo Dilrosun left Manchester City in May to sign for Hertha Berlin.
The highly rated youngster had been unable to push his way through at City, so a move to the Bundesliga club looked a good bet.
Seven games in and the 20 year old has three assists and two goals to his name, and is clearly going about things the right way in German football.
There was already a buzz around the young Dutchman given he’d arrived from Manchester City, so the good start has only encouraged that further.
SportBild managed to get a chat with the young man and he certainly sounds happy about the time he spent in England.
On why he moved to the club at the age of 16, Dilrosun explained he’d turned down a Premier League rival: “That was the next step for me. I had two offers, Manchester City and Chelsea fought for me. I went to Manchester because they had built a brand new building for their youth.”
Inevitably, the German magazine asked about Pep Guardiola, to which the youngster said: “We only spoke on the training pitch. But I’ve learned a lot from him, which will help me for the rest of my life.”
Pressed to elaborate, Dilrosun said: “In passing games he explained to me: Here you have to position yourself to get the ball, then you can go forward freely!
“To catch the right moment is one of the most important things as a player.”
Given all of that SportBild asked the left sided attacker if it’s his dream to return to Manchester City, and he kept his signing options open: “In three or four years I might like to play for a big club in Europe. Where exactly does not matter.”
