Pep Reject Lights Up Bundesliga

One of Pep Guardiola’s rejects at Manchester City, who only cost his new club €250 000, is lighting up the Bundesliga with his trickery and goals.

Javairo Dilrosun joined Hertha BSC from City in the beginning of the season, with the Bundesliga side only having to pay a development fee worth €250 000 (R4.1 million), because the left-winger was not considered good enough by Guardiola’s club.

Dilrosun played for City’s U23 side last season and trained a few times with the first team, but ultimately was not able to convince Guardiola. However, he has started the new Bundesliga season on fire, scoring two goals and assisting in another three.

Despite Guardiola’s oversight, the Ajax Amsterdam youth product says he learned a lot from his few sessions under the Spaniard.

“How he thinks about football and has told us tactics is special. I could learn a lot,” the starlet told Bild.

Dilrosun started in Hertha’s U23 side this season, but has quickly moved up to the first team after impressing his new coach.

“Football is always about winning. I learned soccer on the streets of Amsterdam,” he added.

“There my opponents were always older and taller than me. That's why I learned to push through.“

Hertha manager Parl Dadai is full of praise for the 20-year-old, insisting he is the most skilfull player in his squad.

“Javairo is a shy boy. He also felt insecure at the beginning. I then had a few one-on-one talks with him and told him that this could be his future,” Dardai explained.

“In the U23 he then got the necessary form, which he shows now. He can do things that nobody else can do at our club. He has a lot of tricks.“

Dilrosun, who has represented the Netherlands at all youth levels, has the next chance to impress when Hertha host Bayern Munich on Friday night.
