The Wales footballer has recently signed for Schalke in the German Bundesliga, but he’s yet to score a goal at his new club.

Rabbi Matondo is a product of the Cardiff City and Manchester City youth systems.

The 18-year-old winger came out of the Citizens young squads to join Schalke in the German Bundesliga.

He soon made a big impression in the second team and has played one match with the senior squad, but he has yet to score a single goal.

“I am very satisfied with my performance, but still I would be happier if I could have scored,” said Matondo after his first appearance with the senior squad according to the team’s official website.

“I could have scored a goal myself. I am learning from every minute on the pitch and every tough training session. I am sure the goals will come.”

“We should have at the minimum scored a goal and that would have won the game,” he said.

“We weren’t clinical enough in front of goal.”

“In the end, I was just thinking too much about what I was going to do,” he continued.

“If I can get more experience, then I will learn when to make the right decisions in the decisive moments.”
