Australian winger Daniel Arzani has told the Fox Football Podcast wants to stay at Celtic to prove his potential.

The youngster joined the club on-loan last season but has played one half of football due to injury.

Now, with the worst of it over, the Man City man wants to get back on the pitch.

Arzani also mentions a key ingredient to what Brendan Rodgers wanted from his attackers.

This finished his season and any hopes of fans seeing the starlet. Nevertheless, the 20-year-old wants to look forward and not back.

He told Fox Football Australia: “I’ve set my eyes on next season being a big one for me,

“A lot of people of have been saying I have potential…but at the end of the day there’s still a lot unproven.

“Right now my main focus is just getting back from this ACL injury and feeling good.”


Arzani will join the Hoops in a couple of weeks to begin pre-season training.

Arzani also gave a background into how the previous manager liked to work.

Attackers should be able to defend

Rodgers was a stickler for detail and quality as every fan knows. How far that went is anyone’s guess outside the inner workings of the football club.

Arzani gave and insight on the Irishman and what he required from his attackers.

He said: “It was a challenge for me to play under Brendan Rodgers at the beginning – his mindset was to have his attackers defend a lot.

“It’s not an easy team to break into.”

The team will be even harder to get into for Arzani as Maryan Shved and Lewis Morgan will boost the numbers.

However, Arzani is a quality player and will be able to develop at Celtic. He can easily become the next Patrick Roberts, but he needs to work hard to get there.
