What are his parents’ names?
He was born in Ghana to Ghanaian parents, David Doku and Belinda Doku. He grew up in Borgerhout with his brother and two sisters. His father, according to accounts, was an athlete. Their neighborhood was dangerous because it was linked to poverty, violence and human trafficking. His mother previously claimed that she was lucky that both of her boys were passionate about football and did not get involved in booze or drugs or influenced by bad people. Jefferson, Doku’s older brother, is also a football player.
In 2018, he was about to move to Liverpool.
Doku’s parents said in an interview that their son was close to joining Liverpool as a replacement for Sadio Mane in 2018. Doku’s father, David, spoke of how Liverpool manager Klopp saw Jeremy’s potential to replace Sadio Mane and tried him persuade to join the club. Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, Ajax and PSV were all interested when he was 16, and he visited clubs such as Liverpool and Ajax. At this point, David preferred Liverpool. Despite this, Doku chose to stay with his youth club Anderlecht.
David said that former general manager of Anderlecht, Herman Van Holsbeeck, did everything to keep Doku. They found out after seeing a video in which Romelu Lukaku said it was best to break through Belgium first and then escape through the main gates. Holsbeeck was successful while Jeremy was hesitant to go. Whether anyone asks Doku if he has any regrets, he answers no, as he feels that if Liverpool came to him at 15 and loved him, no doubt they would come back later. It is up to him to perform successfully.
He has been included in Belgium’s final 26-man FIFA World Cup squad.
Doku has been included in Belgium’s final 26-man squad for the FIFA World Cup, which will be contested in Qatar. He made his debut for the national team against Denmark in the 2020 UEFA Nations League on 5 September 2020. He scored his first goal for the national team three days later, in a 5-1 win against Iceland.
A series of injuries ensued.
Doku has been plagued with injuries since last season, which has kept him on the bench most of the time. According to Rennes manager Bruno Genesio, his current injury is a setback for the 20-year-old. Doku is caught in a vicious spiral, which is psychologically tough for him. He went on to say that he gets injured, returns to get playing time, then gets injured again and has to start over. In a recent interview, Doku said that to avoid harm, several daily routines, such as sleeping earlier, eating differently, and trying to fit everything in, need to be modified.
He also wonders what he can do to prevent damage. He stated that if you want to play football at the top level, you have to get injured once, twice or three times.
Doku’s net worth is expected to be between $1 million and $5 million as of 2022. Top teams have been eyeing him ever since he established himself as one of the hot prospects. He has a bright future and if he maintains his current pace, his net income will skyrocket.
