Dodoo: I’ve always admired the way Doncaster Rovers play

6 September 2021

Joe Dodoo put pen to paper on a two-year deal at Rovers citing playing style as a main motivation for joining the club.

The 6ft striker enjoyed some success at Wigan Athletic last season but says he’s looking for a club to call home so he can play his best football.

“It feels good to be here,” he said. 

“I’ve always admired the way Doncaster Rovers play. I spoke to the manager and the club has ambition so I’m happy to be part of it. 

“The manager wants to play football, he wants to win. He wants to make sure the club do good things, so the ambition of the club and the style of play is what brought me here.” 

Dodoo came through the ranks at Leicester City, playing and training alongside Richie Wellens as a young professional, and he believes that bond will help him hit the ground running at Rovers. 

“I was at Leicester with the manager so we know each other quite well. When the opportunity came for me to join here, things happened quite quickly,” he added. 

“Speaking to the manager just makes me want to be part of things and it makes it quite easy to collaborate together. 

“Every player wants to settle down and find somewhere that they can play their best football. Signing a two-year deal shows that I want to be here and do well for the club. I’m looking forward to it.”
