‘Exactly what City need’: Glenn Murray says £55m Man City star has been a ‘breath of fresh air’

Glenn Murray has said that Jeremy Doku has been a breath of fresh air for Manchester City.

The Manchester club signed the winger during the previous summer transfer window in a deal worth £55m and have since gone on to see him make 10 appearances across all competitions.

With the 21-year-old in with a chance of featuring in his first Manchester derby tomorrow, one pundit and former Premier League player has been sharing his thoughts on the Belgian and what he has produced on the pitch so far for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Speaking in the latest edition of Team Talks by Premier League Production (via Optus Sport), Murray had this to say about Doku and what he offers Guardiola on the pitch.

He said: “Now he’s got someone very different playing on the left. Well, certainly different to Jack Grealish who keeps the ball, he buys free kicks but this guy is so direct, he’s exactly what City need at certain points, especially when teams sit in and say ‘come and beat us,’ well this guy will.
