Mark Schwarzer has suggested to Goal.com that Manchester City-owned youngster Daniel Arzani should not be at Celtic.

Arzani, who can operate as an attacking midfielder or as a winger, joined Celtic on a two-year loan deal from Premier League club City in the summer of 2018.

The 20-year-old was loaned to the Hoops immediately after he moved to defending Premier League champions City from Australian outfit Melbourne City.

 

The Australia international had injury problems last season, and even when he was fit, he struggled for playing time, and was able to make just one competition appearance, and that too as a substitute, as stated on Celtic’s official website.

Former Australia international goalkeeper Schwarzer, who played for the likes of Chelsea and Leicester City in England, has spoken highly of Arzani, and he is unsure if the youngster should have joined Celtic on loan.

Schwarzer told Goal.com about Arzani: “Daniel Arzani is one of those players who has been incredibly exciting and particularly leading up to the World Cup in 2018.

“He had a phenomenal breakthrough season in the A-League. He didn't play enough games over 90 minutes, which is something he needs to build on. The Celtic move is one which I am not sure is the best move for him just yet.”

Schwarzer added: "He is a huge emerging talent from Australia. That's why Man City signed him. I know he was at their sister club in Melbourne.

"He is a huge talent. He is very unpredictable. We haven't had a player like that for a very long time.”

Promising talent

Arzani is a very talented and promising young attacking player who can only get better in the coming years.

If the attacking player gets a run in the team, then he will showcase his quality for Neil Lennon's Celtic.
