Even if the Winter Mercato is finished since the 31st of January, the clubs can nevertheless enlist elements free from any contract or not having a professional lease. RC Lens has therefore put this opportunity into practice by signing for a year and a half (+ three years in option), the Malian milieu Cheick Doucouré.
The new coach of RC Lens, Philippe Montanier would have flashed on the young Cheick Doucouré (18 years).
The coach does not hide his satisfaction with the recruitment made by RC Lens this summer, but one player has attracted his attention more than the others since this summer: Cheick Doucouré (18). rumors say that the young Malian midfielder is the favorite of the new coach of Sang et Or since his arrival in Artois. “Doucouré is the favorite of Philippe Montanier at the beginning of the season, and rightly so. We’ll have to get up early to get him out of 11. ”
Here are the comments of Eric Roy, sports manager of RC LENS about Malian midfielder Cheick Doucouré trained and formed at the JMG Academy at Bamako who signed at RC Lens
“Cheick is a clean and technically very interesting runner-up midfielder. He has a volume of play and a profile that we did not have at the training center yet. He arrived from Mali at winter with our club. We noticed his good adaptability. He is very attentive and serious. You can see that he wants to progress. He knows what he wants and is smart about it. His qualities pleased us! It’s a boy who breathes football! A lot of young players have passed tests at home and it is the first that we keep. This is proof that he has an interesting profile. ”
To complete his apprenticeship at first, Cheick Doucouré should go back and forth between the reserve team in National 2 and Eric Sikora’s group.
