Sterling praises Sanchos work ethic

first_imgRaheem Sterling paid tribute to Jadon Sancho’s work ethic and insists he’s unsurprised on how quickly the teenager’s adapted at EnglandThe 18-year-old winger made his international debut for the senior England team in Friday’s goalless draw at Croatia by replacing Sterling for the final 12 minutes.Despite the short amount of time on the pitch, Sancho left observers impressed with his seamlessly transition into the Three Lions squad.But Sterling, who trained alongside the youngster at City before his switch to Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund, insists that it is of no surprise to him.“He is a really good talent and someone I’ve thought highly of since the first time I saw him at Manchester City when he was training with us in pre-season,” said Sterling, according to the Irish Mirror.“I thought highly of him – his work ethic and what he does with the ball. I know him really well and he’s someone that is really modest but when he’s on the field he wants to express his ability.”Sterling also backed Sancho’s shock decision to leave for Germany last year.“For someone so young to back themselves to go abroad is a credit to them,” he added.“To go abroad so young and back yourself, that shows a lot about the person. He could have taken the easy route and stayed at City but he saw himself developing better.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“That’s what it’s about in football – you have to judge your own situation and he did that perfectly and all credit to him.“He has knuckled down in Germany and, when you’re that age, it’s probably something you need. To have that seclusion and be by yourself a bit and to concentrate solely on football. I’m really happy for him.”After Friday’s match, the England squad had a break at the team hotel with Sterling and Sancho getting involved in a video game showdown between Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.Playing as Juventus, Sancho led the Italian side to a 3-1 win over Sterling’s PSG – which the latter certainly didn’t enjoy come the full-time whistle.We all know that friend 👋😂🤣#Sterling #Sancho #FIFA #FIFA19[🎥IG/sanchooo104] pic.twitter.com/eraKZXU4WY— Xtra Minute (@XtraminuteTV) October 14, 2018last_img
