I love to watch them – Man City’s Doku names two football stars who inspired him

Manchester City winger, Jeremy Doku, has named former Barcelona superstars Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho as the two people who inspired him.

The Belgium international said he loved watching Messi and Ronaldinho while growing up as a kid.

Doku is becoming a superstar in his own right after his £56 million (€68m) transfer to Manchester City during the summer transfer window.

“As a kid, I never had anyone’s poster on my wall. I used to have players I loved to watch – Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho – players who were brilliant dribblers,” Doku told Man City’s official club magazine.

“I learned to dribble on my own – I was always outside, playing with a football practising – but nowadays, you see kids do that less and less and you don’t see as many kids playing on the street with a ball any more.”
