It shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody at this point but during an interview with The World Game. Daniel Arzani has confirmed his Celtic career is over.
The midfielder was just minutes into his debut for the club when an ACL injury would take him out for over a year. When he finally did get fit enough to be considered for game time, Neil Lennon didn’t select the Australian.
A two-year loan from Man City to Celtic has not planned out the way either club would’ve wanted.
Speaking from Australia, Arzani isn’t bitter about his time at the club but does specific next season there will be no return for him at Celtic.
The player was allowed to leave and head back to Australia when the football shut down came into play. It’s likely Daniel will stay there until Manchester City figure out what to do.
“Holland comes up because it’s a selling league and they develop a lot of really good talent there,” Arzani told the world game.. “But they’re not the only league to have done that.”
“It’s been a really tough last two seasons for me. Celtic’s been tough, there are a lot of good people there and it’s a good club, but the most important thing for me is game time and I wasn’t getting that.
“I was getting frustrated with injuries and things like that and the most important thing now is to look forward and go somewhere I think I’ll get game time.”
“It’s tough for Lenny – he came back for his second gig as a Celtic manager with a lot of weight on his shoulders in going for 10 in a row,”
“I’ve been coming back from injury and he’s never seen me play before, so there’s no way I can blame him. He’s a really good guy and a really good coach. It was just unfortunate circumstances.”
Celtic are still waiting to find out what will happen to the rest of the season. More SPFL meetings could end the season at any time.
