Ukraine manager Andriy Shevchenko has lauded Marian Shved, claiming he has ‘progressed hugely’.
The winger joined Celtic back in January for £2 million but was loaned back to Karpaty Lviv for the remainder of the season.
The 21-year-old has already been training with his new teammates and is known to manager Neil Lennon.
At the moment though Shved is on international duty, and AC Milan legend Shevchenko – who scored 246 goals as a player – has been full of praise for the exciting winger.
He said, as quoted by The Scottish Sun: “I’ve been watching him closely for the past two weeks in our training camp.
Shevchenko also added that he feels Shved can become a ‘big player’ for the national team in years to come.
Celtic fans will feel fairly excited about Shved following Shevchenko’s assessment of the winger.
Especially having shown some excellent form after officially agreeing to become a Celtic player.
Many were frustrated last term with loan star Oliver Burke and Timo Weah didn’t get too many opportunites.
Scott Sinclair was also somewhat inconsistent, so Shved arriving with such promise is sure to get fans excited ahead of the new season.
