Javairo Dilrosun has told Voetbal International what he learned from Pep Guardiola at his time with Manchester City. 

The 20-year-old has made a big impression since switching Manchester City for Hertha Berlin this summer and made his Netherlands U21 debut over the past week.

Looking back at his time in England, Dilrosun told VI on Guardiola, “Everything he says is instructive. When he talks, you listen.

I learned a lot from him in the area of tactics and technology. How to take balls, how best to use my speed, how to best defend against the opponent’s back … Pep is truly one of the very best trainers in the world.”

Dilrosun left Ajax for Manchester City in 2014 but failed to make his first-team debut before leaving on a free for Hertha Berlin in the summer. Since then he has made eight appearances for the German side, scoring twice and adding four assists.
