The PEC Zwolle youngster will join Manchester City in the summer after a £2 million deal was struck between the two clubs in January.

For many the move to the Premier League leaders has come to soon for the youngster, but he has told VI that he believes he will get chances in the Manchester City first team.

Sandler said, “I understand the reaction. A player from PEC usually does not transfer to the English top. Yet it is true. There are people who think I can not handle it. I can show them now. What else should I have done? Let this chance go?

“Pep Guardiola wants to work with young talents in the coming years. To buy less arrived players and, as it were, train the boys themselves. I can work with the best trainer in the world. That is a boy’s dream. My management and I spoke extensively with people from City, including Txiki Bergiristain.

“They really knew everything about me! They were impressed by my balls between the lines and my speed. They saw that I got better and better in the duels but I also mentioned that I had problems with space in the back. The video analysts had watched almost all of my matches. That gave a good feeling. I’m not just a number, they really have a plan with me. Guardiola too. When I was in hospital for my medical examination, my father spoke to him. He knew exactly who I was. “
