Ronny Deila believes that the chance to win a treble with Celtic this season will attract players in the January transfer window.
Celtic manager Ronny Deila believes that playing in the Europa League will make his team more attractive to prospective signings in the January transfer window.
The Scottish Premiership champions failed to progress to the group stage of the Champions League at the start of the season, but they are safely through to the round of 32 of the Europa League.
Deila has already suggested that he will try to sign players in January, and he has now claimed that playing in Europe will make his job easier.
RD: We have the treble to go for, which is very important. Our aim is to try & make the squad better than it is now. Hopefully we’ll do that— Celtic Football Club (@celticfc) December 12, 2014
RD: It’s a positive thing to still be in Europe, and that's important when we go out and try to attract players to Celtic.— Celtic Football Club (@celticfc) December 12, 2014
RD: We’re going for the treble and the Europa League, so players who really want to achieve something can do so when they come to Celtic.— Celtic Football Club (@celticfc) December 12, 2014
Celtic boss Deila seems very ambitious, and his words could affect players positively who are looking to join the Bhoys.
It is pretty much given that the Glasgow outfit will win the Premiership title this campaign, but it will be very tough to emerge victorious in the Europa League.
But it seems that Deila is keen on achieving that feat, and maybe, just maybe, he will succeed.
