Celtic are reportedly setting up a partnership with a Polish side which could reap the rewards in the future. The Scottish Sun are reporting that the Hoops are set to partner with Korona Kielce.
The Polish side will reportedly set up training camps. The best players will be picked by Celtic and given a trial in Glasgow.
Korona are currently in ninth place in the overall league, and in second place in the relegation round of the Ekstraklasa.
Success in the past
It is certainly interesting to see Celtic partner with a team in Poland. The Hoops have had success with players from the country in recent years, with Artur Boruc arguably being the most successful.
For Celtic, trying to find players that want to play in Scotland in tough.
Not easy to recruit players
The football isn’t the best, for a start. Therefore, you need to try to find players where you can, that want to play in Scotland.
This partnership could help find players for the Hoops. If one player from the partnership manages to break into the Celtic side and is then sold on for a profit, the scheme has been a great success.
Who knows, if it succeeds it could be one of a number of partnerships around the world. Football is rapidly changing. It is good to see that Celtic are adapting to the new world. It bodes well for the future of the club, no matter who the next manager is.
