Rennes winger Jeremy Doku will not be available for selection in his side’s Ligue 1 game this Sunday against Metz due to injury.
The speedster who was set for a return after suffering an injury on August 22 during a league game against Nantes, is injured again and will not be available for several weeks, Rennes coach Bruno Genesio revealed at a press conference.
While he thought he had seen the end of the tunnel after recovering from his hamstring injury in Rennes’ victory against Nantes (1-0), Jeremy Doku (19) is not ready to do his return with the Breton jersey.
The gaffer during a presser revealed that the Belgian winger who was to make his return this weekend against Metz was injured again and will be unavailable for several weeks.
“Unfortunately, we have a player who was injured this week, Jeremy Doku who recovered badly but not in the same place, to a knee on Monday,” he said.
The Rennes coach gave details of the Belgian’s new physical problem, which will keep him away from the field for some time.
“It is the external lateral ligament which is affected, so we will have within ten days the duration of his unavailability. It does not require an operation, it is the good news in the bad, but we will follow the evolution, see how the ligament reacts. An absence until Christmas? No, a priori, no, but it’s difficult to have a deadline for this kind of injury, ”he said.
Jeremy Doku, who has only had three appearances since the start of the season, will therefore not be able to help Rennes to stay in line with their performance against PSG (2-0 victory). An observation that pains Bruno Genesio: “It’s a hard blow. He had already been absent for six weeks, he had made a lot of efforts to come back, he was very well, with perfect mental freshness,” he said. entrusts
This new injury will again be a drag for Doku who since the second part of last season had started to show the followers of Ligue 1 the extent of his potential.
The youngster who already has bagged two goals and three assists, has given trouble to many teams, including PSG.
