"12m is a steal"; Celtic supporters react to Jeremie Frimpong and his European assist
Celtic supporters have reacted to Jeremie Frimpong and his display for new club Bayer Leverkusen.
Last night, we told you about Frimpong’s part in a dramatic 4-3 loss. It was a result that puts pressure on Peter Bosz’s side. Also, with Frimpong showing his attacking talents, but defensive weaknesses, it was a bit like watching his Celtic career in a nutshell.
Still, there are plenty who feel we’ve missed out on a really exciting talent. When Frimpong joined Bayer Leverkusen at the end of last month [FourFourTwo], many felt a bit robbed. While far from the finished article, the ex-Man City player was at the very least exciting to watch.
At only 20, it felt like he could eventually become a fantastic Celtic defender, with some additions to his game. One of those additions is a final ball, but some Celtic supporters are suggesting he always had it in him.
So, despite losing 4-3 to Young Boys at the Wankdorf, Frimpong has seemingly added to his reputation, rather than having it harmed by conceding 4 goals. Football is strange like that.
Celtic supporters react to Jeremie Frimpong assist
Frimpong began the fightback for Leverkusen, with a beautiful floated cross for Patrick Schick. Subsequently, Celtic supporters were wondering if Jeremie Frimpong had that in his game all along.
There were also some who stated that it wasn’t as if Frimpong had never delivered a cross. Here are our pick of the social media reactions.
Maybe Frimpong didn’t have a bad final ball just Celtic never put anyone in the box. Exciting to see how he develops https://t.co/9XCxQZzfBG

Always a body short on a congested box
Frimpong is quality. 12m is a steal

That assist from Frimpong that’s floating about tells you everything you need to know about Lennon’s Celtic

Only took Frimpong a fortnight to develop a final ball under a proper football coach https://t.co/dJyujLwbe0

Plenty being said about Jeremy Frimpong’s excellent cross last night, not so much said about the 4 goals they lost. We all know he is a good player, but not a defender.

“Frimpong doesn’t have a final ball and ye can’t coach that”
Only took they German boys about 3 week. https://t.co/lXOl77TZY1
