Morocco international Achraf Hakimi has cemented his spot at Bundesliga table-toppers Dortmund since penning a two-year loan deal from Los Blancos in July 2018. 

Having registered seven assists and three goals in 24 appearances across all competitions thus far for the club, Hakimi is one of a number of youngsters who are flourishing in a youthful Dortmund outfit this season. 

The 20-year-old recently discussed the differences between playing in the Bundesliga as opposed to LaLiga, and also heaped praise on Sancho, who arrived at the club in August 2017 from Manchester City and has since gone on to take the German top flight by storm.

"It's a different competition from what I've been playing in previously," Hakimi told the Bundesliga's official website.

"I like the way they compete, and above all I like the fans, how they live for football. It's a different type of football to what I've been used to but I like the back-and-forth games, and it's really nice. Personally I'm happy, I'm progressing how I want and I'm getting the playing time I need.

"You've already seen Sancho's a great player. I'm a big fan of his, of how he plays, how he dribbles, the ease he has when one-on-one. He's still young like me, we've got to keep working every day, learn everything we can, and I think if he continues like this then he's going to have a really good career.

"As well as being teammates, we get on really well in the changing room and we share a number of things."

Do you think Sancho will go on to become one of the world's best footballers? Have your say in the comments section below.
