Jeremy Doku embarrassed by 17-year-old starlet in Man City training as new details emerge

Jeremy Doku was reportedly embarrassed by a 17-year-old starlet during Manchester City training.

Doku was something of an unexpected arrival at the Etihad Stadium last summer, and he has enjoyed mixed fortunes since completing a £55.5 million move from Rennes.

The Belgian winger looked as though he’d hit the ground running for City with some exciting early performances, but in recent months his end product has has left a lot to be desired.

Doku was much better in City’s 4-1 home Premier League victory against Aston Villa on Wednesday evening, and at just 21 years old, he has plenty of time to become the finished article.

The winger has enjoyed a rapid rise over the last few years, but earlier this season he was brought down to earth by another City youngster.

One of Doku’s strengths is his unpredictable dribbling style, which makes it difficult to defenders to tackle him or at least contain him.

In the days before City and Arsenal’s goalless draw last weekend, Arsenal defenders Gabriel and William Saliba both identified Doku as the trickiest opponent in the Premier League.

However, one City youngster has proven that stopping Doku when he is in full flight isn’t impossible.

According to the Daily Mail, young City full-back Rhys Thomas went up against Doku when he was asked to participate in a first team training session a few months ago.

Doku reportedly failed to get past the 17-year-old Wales youth international throughout the session, much to the amusement of the winger’s City teammates.

Thomas, who can play on either side of defence, has made six appearances in the Under-18s Premier League this season and recently signed a new contract at City.

He is expected to become a regular for the City Under-21s next season.

Having shown he has what it takes to get the better of a £55m winger, then Thomas could have a successful career ahead of him.
