Jonathan David interested by biggest clubs and Jonathan David’s personality is as unassuming as the route
he took into professional football.
While he is not one to shout about himself, the 22-year-old Canada striker has taken the many challenges he
has faced in his career in his stride.
Born in New York, David moved to Haiti aged three before his parents emigrated to Ottawa three years later.
There, he made the first of several good decisions when he joined local club Ottawa Gloucester Hornets at the age of nine.
His rise has continued in Ligue 1, where he is established as one of the most dangerous forwards in the country.
So, when his team Lille faces Chelsea in the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday,
he will do so as a striker who is attracting attention from some of the continent’s biggest clubs.
The Canadian international forward Jonathan David has scored three goals in six Champions League games this season.
