Celtic captain Scott Brown has praised the ability of his teammate Jeremie Frimpong, who is starting to make quite the impression at Parkhead.
The Bhoys signed him from Manchester City at the beginning of September and he’s been given his first taste of senior level by the Scottish champions.
Frimpong is an attack-minded right-back that has plenty of competition for a spot in Neil Lennon’s starting XI, but has taken his chance whenever it’s come along.
The 19-year-old has Moritz Bauer and Hatem Abd Elhamed as senior teammates he’s battling against.
He has now played 10 first-team games this season in all competitions, scoring two gaols and supplying three assists in return.
The speed machine is such a brilliant offensive threat when he bombs forward past opponents and he’s looked electric at times in the Scottish Premiership.
Celtic’s veteran midfielder Brown has explained he’s been impressed by Frimpong so far this season with his performances.
“He’s got a lot of energy. He’s incredible the way he runs up and down that line. His change of direction, his speed….he’s also a lovely lad and down to earth,” Brown said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.
Frimpong is such a raw talent that is fast becoming a fan favourite and the energy he brings from the full-back area is a huge plus.
He can definitely improve defensively and can be a little naive at times, as proven by his red card in the Scottish League Cup final win over Rangers.
But he’s still just a teenager with his career ahead of him and he’s got the perfect platform to develop into a top-class right-backs in the coming years with Celtic.
