Jai wants to join cousin in Eng­land

Lennox Herald - - SPORTING MEMORIES -

Jai Quitongo is poised to leave Dum­bar­ton af­ter set­ting his sights on a move to Eng­land.

The jet-heeled striker, and brother of Sons’ Young Player of the Year Rico, joined Jim Duffy’s men in Jan­uary on a short-term deal from Ira­nian side Ma­chine Sazi . He played six times, scor­ing once against For­far Ath­letic in March on his re­turn from an in­jury­plagued two sea­sons.

Now he’s hop­ing to re­dis­cover the form that at­tracted the likes of New­cas­tle United dur­ing his early days at Mor­ton – by mov­ing in with cousin, Manchester United star­let An­gel Gomes (right).

Jai said:“This is a weird time for ev­ery foot­baller as we’ve never ex­pe­ri­enced any­thing like this be­fore.

“It al­lows you to take stock of things, as­sess how you’ve done and what you want to do.

“I’ve al­ways wanted to move to Eng­land and now, with all the un­cer­tainty, it’s the right time.

“It will help to have An­gel’s sup­port but what­ever I do, I will do it on my own. What I see from him is the way he has made the most of his op­por­tu­nity. When­ever I go to watch him play and see the life he lives, then I see the kind of life I want.

“What he has achieved at such a young age is in­spir­ing to the fam­ily.

“I’m ob­vi­ously not go­ing to play at a club like Manchester United but it’s an ex­cit­ing chal­lenge for me in a new en­vi­ron­ment.”
