Marian Shved has told Celtic’s official website that he is enjoying his first few days at Celtic after finally jetting in from Ukraine, following his loan spell with Karpaty.
The 21-year-old winger joined Celtic in the January transfer window for £2million (Sport Arena), but he returned on loan to Karpaty for the rest of the 2018-19 campaign.
The one-time Ukraine international has shown Celtic fans what he is capable of. Showing versatility by playing up front, out wide and in the 10 role, Shved has scored 15 goals this season and created four more in 26 games.
Now, he has linked up with the rest of the Celtic squad and is already training with his new teammates – as he prepares for next season. He stated that he is enjoying his new life in Glasgow, and commented on eight in a row.
“It’s great to finally be here at Celtic. I’ve been really excited about coming, and now I am here, I’m really looking forward to starting my Celtic career,” Shved said. “I’ve had a great few days at the training ground already.
“It is an unbelievable achievement for a club to win eight league titles in a row and I congratulate the manager and all the boys and the staff. I am looking forward to our party on Sunday.”
Shved boasts all the potential and necessary ability to be another Celtic signing that sees them bring in an unknown player from one of the world’s lesser footballing countries, and shines.
Mikael Lustig, Tom Rogic, Nir Bitton and Jozo Simunovic were all signed as unknowns in recent years, but have grown to become key members of the first team.
At such a young age, Shved is already considered one of the best players in Ukranian football and surely he can make the step up to shine in Scotland.
