Matthews, who only turned 18 on September 12th, has already made his debut for Dortmund’s U19s having gone straight into their UEFA Youth League side and is now focusing on making a name for himself in Germany following his switch from Mzansi. 

Speaking in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, the South African youth international, who came through the ranks at Ajax Cape Town, has been spending a lot of time with America’s hottest prospect, even staying with him for a while. 

Matthews told Soccer Laduma, “I’ve spent a lot of time with Captain America, Christian Pulisic. He’s part of the Dortmund family and that’s how we started interacting together. I was even living at his place for a while the first time I went over. He’s a guy that I’ve been learning from.

“He’s been giving me lots of advice, but the one thing that he’s stressed is that it’s tough being away from family, but as long as I do my best on the field and again, stay con­sistent, I can push on.” 

‘Tassie’ also revealed his biggest fear since moving to Europe, saying, “My biggest fear is to go there and not play at all. That’s certainly my biggest fear. I can be there, but if I’m not playing then that would be hard. As long as I’m playing then I’ll be happy.”

The talented teenager remained in Germany over the current international break, and will now have his sights set on making his U19 Bundesliga debut in the coming weeks.
