Celtic are facing an injury sweat over their star striker Kyogo Furuhashi.
Furuhashi was subbed off in Japan’s 1-0 win over China in the early stages of the second half with a knee injury which is leaving the Hoops fans frantically waiting for news from Ange Postecoglou on the damage that has been done and, if any, how long he will be on the sidelines.
With crucial Europa League matches, and league and cup business coming up Kyogo will be crucial to the teams results and any absence will be a cause for concern for the Celtic fans.
Speaking on The PLZ Football Show, Charlie Adam hinted that one of Celtic’s forgotten men should be brought back in from the cold to shore up any potential gap Kyogo may leave, “When any player goes off injured in the international games you worry, and now he has got to travel back a long way from Japan.
” Celtic will be hoping he comes back and it’s not too serious, but if they had to lose him for a bit then it would be a blow, but they have got Ajeti coming in.
“I said last season for £5million that it was a gamble, and it never worked last season.
“Edouard is out the door now, and that’s a big blow because he’s a top player, but his heart wasn’t in that.
“Ange has got to find a way to fit them all in the system, but Kyogo missing will be a blow.”
Right. So Celtic bring in the Eredivisie’s top goalscorer to then sit him on the bench and allow a striker that has offered next to nothing for over a season to take his place?
Am I reading that right?
But then, Adam did correctly predict that Celtic would not get double figures for Odsonne Edouard this transfer window so……….
