Celtic defender Christopher Jullien believes team-mate Odsonne Edouard is better than former Bhoys hitman Moussa Dembele, as per the Times.
Dembele now plays for Lyon, where Jullien faced him with Toulouse last term, who can offer Champions League football and value him at £71 million amid interest from Manchester United, according to the Express.
And Jullien said: “I have already said that there is no limit to what Odsonne can do, because his game is so complete. He can do everything. He’s not slow, he can run, he can dribble, he can play with his head, he can come deep and play like a No 10 and his skills are unbelievable.
“Moussa is a good striker, really powerful, and Odsonne is a different striker but the sky is the limit for him. I would say, though, that Odsonne is better because I’ve only played with him! You all saw that Moussa is a really good striker but Odsonne is younger and his talent is really good.”
TBR’s View – Edouard is a Champions League striker playing in the Europa League
Jullien’s words underline that Edouard is on the same level as a player playing well in the Champions League and attracting attention from superclubs across the continent.
Neil Lennon has a real gem on his hands and he is in the ideal place to develop. The fans must just hope they can keep him for longer than they managed to hang onto Dembele for.
