Matondo on leaving City

on why he left Man City: “It was an offer [chance to play for Schalke’s first team] I couldn’t turn down. In footballing terms I wasn’t a regular around the first team.”

: “I trained with the first team and it was a good experience training with Pep and the other players. It is not City’s fault, they have a wonderful team with wonderful players. But if you want to break in at City it is not going to be easy.”

: “If I had stayed there, then I would have tried my best to break through. But I had other options and I thought it was the best time for me and my footballing ability to progress somewhere else.”

: “A big factor about moving away was trying to break into the Wales team more regularly. With more first-team football at my club, then I’m in a better position to be in the Wales senior team. That was probably the main reason why I wanted move”
