Damien Duff’s arrival should excite Celtic winger Daniel Arzani.
According to The Irish Independent, Celtic are set to hire Damien Duff as their new reserve coach.
The legendary winger, who worked with Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers at Chelsea, will join up with the Hoops’ second string from January.
This is a player with two Premier League titles to his name as well as over 100 caps for the Republic of Ireland.
He will no doubt pass on a great deal of knowledge to Celtic’s next generation and one man who could benefit in a big way from Duff’s presence at Lennoxtown is Daniel Arzani.
Like Duff, Arzani is a left-sided winger and one tipped for big things, having joined Rodgers’s side on a two-year loan after signing for Manchester City in the summer.
Arzani, who won’t play again until next season after suffering cruciate damage, will need someone to help take him to the next level after working back to full fitness, and who better than a man who not only knows what it takes to play on the left wing, but someone with a history of knee injuries.
There is nothing to suggest that Arzani will be blighted with the same setbacks as Duff throughout a hopefully glittering career, but the former Newcastle and Fulham star is immediately relatable for a number of reasons and it could be the making of Arzani.
