Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham has suggested to the club’s official website that he wants to score more goals.

Ntcham made the comments after signing a new contract with Celtic which will see him stay at Celtic Park until the summer of 2022, as announced on the club's official website.

The 22-year-old midfielder has scored 13 goals in 68 appearances in all competitions for the Hoops so far the season, as stated on Celtic’s official website.

 

The French youngster - who joined the Hoops from Manchester City in the summer of 2017 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £4.5 million - has suggested that he wants to add goals to his game.

Ntcham told Celtic’s official website: “I want to improve on everything in respect of the game. Scoring more goals is, of course, part of the game and is important for me as well.”

Promising talent

Ntcham is a very talented and promising young midfielder who has established himself in the Celtic first team.

Scoring more goals will certainly be welcomed, but as long as the Frenchman does what he does best in midfielder, he will be just fine.

Celtic will return to action on Sunday afternoon when they take on Livingston away from home in the Scottish Premiership.
