1 min read

Jeremy DokuSporting Director of Stade Rennes, Florian Maurice has likened Jeremy Doku to Brazil legends Rai and Juninho Pernambucano despite his inconsistent start to life at the club.Doku enjoyed a rapid rise in stature this summer, due to his exceptional performances at RSC Anderlecht that saw himdirectly contribute tosix goals in seven matches in the Jupiler Pro League.But, life has difficult following his 26 million move to Rennes, with the winger yet to be involved in a single goal in nine competitive appearances for the French side.Dokus lack of productivity is surprising given the fact that Rennes has been one of the highest-scoring teams in Ligue 1 this term.We dared to hit Jrmy Doku, born in 2002, who arrived on October 5 and who played two days later with players whose first names he did not know! Today, it is gradually integrating. He got his apartment back a week ago.We are always in a hurry with the recruits, but I know that for some, it takes three, four, five, six months. And I have the example of Rai in Paris or Juninho in Lyon, where it took a year for them to perform.
