Former Manchester City winger Javairo Dilrosun claims they are more like a company than a football club

After starting out his youth career at Ajax, Dilrosun moved to City in 2014 at the age of just 14 years old.

Dilrosun soon started playing for City’s U-23 team in the Premier League 2 but never made the jump up to senior level and left the Etihad Stadium in the summer for Hertha BSC.

The 20-year-old has since made 12 appearances for Hertha and he’s even added two goals and three assists in the Bundesliga.

And now the Dutchman had some rather uncomplimentary words for City’s board – although he did have some nice things to say about manager Pep Guardiola.

Hasselbaink: Chelsea need Hazard to stay more than ever now

Former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes it's critical now the club convince Eden Hazard to commit his long-term future.

“City are like a company,” Dilrosun told ELF Voetbal. “Players are their merchandise.

“I didn’t really speak many times with Guardiola, but I’ve learned so much from just watching him.

“He gave some great advice that made me a better player – details about my first touch for example.

“And he’s very capable of explaining his tactics to his players.”

Hertha are currently seventh in the Bundesliga table and will host Eintracht Frankfurt this Saturday.
