Pep Guardiola is already a fan of his new winger. Bought from Stade Rennais for no less than 65 million this summer, Jérémy Doku has already conquered his new audience, scoring his first goal for Manchester City against West Ham last week. The twirling striker then made a beautiful copy in the Champions League against Red Star Belgrade (3-1), before being rewarded by his coach, starting against Nottingham Forest in the Premier League this Saturday (16h).

And visibly happy, the Spanish technician first evoked the qualities of the Belgian international (16 caps) before the game: "I would say that the wingers we have had in the past were not this type of wingers. They had incredible skills and qualities, but they weren't as fast. The speed we had with Raheem Sterling, we didn't have in the past. »

"Doku is explosive"

Pep Guardiola then compared Jérémy Doku to Raheem Sterling, who played for the club from 2015 to 2022 (339 matches for 131 goals), and Leroy Sané, Cityzens player from 2016 to 2020 (134 matches for 37 goals): "Even Cole Palmer, Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva, even Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, of course have speed, But they rely above all on their technical quality, their intelligence of play, their counter-attacks. Jeremy Doku is explosive. With his speed, he has similar qualities to Leroy Sané and Raheem Sterling. Great inspirations for the 21-year-old, who certainly wants the same success as the Englishman.
