VfB Stuttgart head coach Pellegrino Matarazzo says he is “looking forward to meeting” Borussia Dortmund starlet and fellow American Gio Reyna for the first time when the two teams meet on Matchday 11, saying the 18-year-old has “enormous potential”.
Matarazzo is approaching the one-year anniversary of his time in the Stuttgart hotseat, having taken charge on 30 December last year.
Ahead of Stuttgart’s trip to Dortmund on Matchday 11, Matarazzo admitted he is a big admirer of his young compatriot.
“He’s a fantastic player with enormous potential,” the 43-year-old told bundesliga.com. “I like seeing how he develops. He’s quick on the ball, very sharp, good movement. I like him. I look forward to seeing him.”
