The Ivorian made his league debut for Celtic this weekend but will look back on it with disappointment.
With a bone-crunching tackle, the 19-year-old showed what he was all about against St Mirren, and that 13-minute cameo suggested Brendan Rodgers had uncovered another gem.
Kouassi got another chance to impress from the bench on Sunday, this time against Dundee, but unfortunately he was unable to dominate proceedings as he would have hoped, looking out of sorts and in desperate need of time and patience.
There is no doubt Celtic have a real talent on their hands, but he had an off day against Dundee during his 32 minutes on the pitch.
He proved his worth at former club Krasnodar and will hope to have rediscovered his edge when Celtic return to domestic matters after the latest international break.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Celtic fans thought of the teenager’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
Eboue Kouassi already getting grief from our fans ffs . Mind you, Dembele was written off as a dud after a small handful of games.— Samrat (@samrat_m67) March 19, 2017

Kouassi Eboue looks very raw. We are going to have to be patient with him— Barcabhoy (@Barcabhoy1) March 19, 2017
We need Rogic back & a couple of weeks without games good for some
As if people are having a pop at Kouassi Eboue already. Sit down. The lad has played about 50 minutes of football over two games.— Ben (@BenTheTim) March 19, 2017
