The transfer speculation surrounding the club reached fever pitch last week.
The talk of Daizen Maeda joining Celtic has been going on since July this year, and with him being Celtic boss, Ange Postecoglou, former player, it seems someone has put 2+2 together and hoping they are coming up with the correct answer.
A brilliant interview with Maeda has just surfaced from Japanese outlet Sportiva Shueisha, where he gives a brilliant insight to his psyche and a reason why Ange Postecoglou is looking to land his former striker, “I have a lot of chances [in front of goal].
“I have a lot of chances and there have been moments in which I could score more, but I didn’t. After it, I try not to think too much about it.
“Nightmares can come. I cherish that. Even if I miss the shot, if someone scores a goal and the team wins, I feel comfortable, but if I miss it and lose, it can be dragged.
“I run for the team, and do it crazy. If you lose that, you’re done. I’m not a good player, so I have to work hard all the time to compete with a good player.”
It certainly does seem as though Maeda would fit into the culture Postecoglou is trying to build at the club and it would be very interesting to see a player of his calibre line up with Kyogo.
That front line would be devastating.
