Manchester City lynchpin Rodri has lavished praise on to Jeremy Doku after his devastating display against West Ham United.

As quoted by the Daily Mail, the Spanish international gave his two cents on the recently-signed £55.4 million (BBC Sport) man.

Rodri has been seriously impressed by Jeremy Doku, who was the clear standout for Manchester City in their 3-1 victory against West Ham United.

Rodri says Jeremy Doku has ‘incredible ability’

Branded as ‘exceptional’ by Txiki Begiristain, the Belgian winger was a force to be reckoned with at the London Stadium on Saturday.

The youngster scored the all-important equaliser for City, tearing Vladimir Coufal to shreds before slotting the ball past Alphonso Areola, as his dribbling, pace and decision-making were all top-drawer.

Rodri has now had his say on Jeremy Doku, who has become the talk of the town since his second start in a Manchester City shirt.

“It’s clear, he has to loosen up. His quality and his ability is one on one, it’s not easy because he always attacks defences that are closed. He has to learn to choose the moment when to go, because he has an incredible ability with that speed”, he said.

Manchester City have signed a gem in Jeremy Doku

Rodri is right to have singled out Jeremy Doku for praise after he gave West Ham a nightmare throughout the contest in his side’s latest triumph.

While every winger that has signed for City under Pep Guardiola has struggled in their debut campaigns, it seems like the former Rennes sensation could be an exception to the rule.

In only his second game for the club, Doku’s understanding of Guardiola’s tactical setup came across as flawless, as he knew when to take on his man, retain possession and run in behind.

As he continues to learn the Manchester City way under the Catalan coach, it would be virtually impossible to put a cap on the highly-rated wideman’s ceiling.
