Without Camavinga, the new savior could be named Doku


Arrived at Stade Rennais in the last hours of the transfer window, Jérémy Doku could take on the savior costume, after the injury of Eduardo Camavinga.

After a thunderous start to the season, including a series of four consecutive league victories, Stade Rennais stalled with three draws, and two consecutive defeats, against Angers (1-2) in Ligue 1 and Seville (1-0 ) in the Champions League.

This current mishap cost him his place as leader, now owned by a PSG to whom the Bretons will visit in eight days.

All probably without his nugget Eduardo Camavinga, injured. 

All eyes are therefore on Jérémy Doku, who at the beginning of October became the biggest transfer in the history of the club (more than 26 million euros).

The 18-year-old Belgian nugget will have to wear this superhero cape in a Rennes attack that no longer scores (only 3 goals in 4 matches).

The twirling winger made his pro debut at 16 years and a few months, and, like Camavinga in the French team, the Belgian made his Belgian debut in the fall, with a goal in his first tenure.

"Rennes is a club where I can play and the other clubs will see me in the Champions League"

For his first press conference on Friday, the Belgian international spoke about his new club, and Rennes represents the perfect springboard in his eyes.

“At my age I really needed to play, and I felt like I could take it to the next level here.

I didn't want to go too high either.

Rennes is a club where I can play and the other clubs will see me in the Champions League, ”he said.


The rhythm of the matches and the international meetings did not allow to introduce @JeremyDoku to the press.

It is now done!

I have come to score and deliver assists.

I still have to make progress on this ”.
