Celtic defender Jeremie Frimpong reveals he tries to copy Dani Alves

Celtic star Jeremie Frimpong has revealed he tries to base his game on legendary Brazilian full-back Dani Alves.

The summer singing from Manchester City has finally started to make an impression at Parkhead, with Neil Lennon hailing his ‘outstanding’ training levels.

Frimpong has received a positive reception from Celtic supporters, many of whom are clamouring to see him become a regular in the side.

Speaking about his style, the 18-year-old said (Scottish Sun): “I’ve always looked at Dani Alves and how he plays. I’ve always looked up to him.


“I think I can bring a lot to the team. Attacking and defensively. I’d love to make myself first choice.I’m enjoying it a lot. I’m really grateful and I’m going to keep working hard to keep it going.”

Frimpong has a battle on his hands to become Lennon’s main man, with the club having signed Moritz Bauer and Hatem Elhamed in the summer.

TBR’s view – No better role model than Alves

Undoubtedly the South American, who is still playing for Sao Paulo back in Brazil, is one of the greatest-ever right-backs and is brilliant inspiration to all young right-backs, particularly attack-minded ones.

His excellence on the ball combined with his intelligence made his truly fearsome, and Frimpong can’t go wrong learning from the 37-year-old.
