KYOGO FURUHASHI has set his personal targets for this season, outlining he hopes to score twenty league goals.

This doesn’t look to be a problem for the in-form striker, netting the ball eight times already. He is currently 12 goals off his target with the season just getting under full flow.

For a comparison, Celtic’s striker last season – Edouard – netted the ball eighteen times in the league last season.

The man from Japan has taken the league by storm since arriving from the J-League and his form hasn’t been hampered by his recent injury – he scored in his first league game back after looking dangerous in the mid-week European tie prior.

What is interesting about his twenty goal target is the fact he plays it down, claiming that twenty goals a season is what a club like Celtic should expect from their striker. The Japanese international knows what it means to play for Celtic.

Speaking to the Japanese news outlet Number Web and translated by The Daily Record, Kyogo revealed his objectives for this season;

“First of all, I would like to score more than 20 goals this season.

“I’m a teammate, so I’m just grateful that the team trusts the players right after joining. Whether it’s as a forward or out wide, I have a strong desire to get results in my given position.”

When quizzed on Scotland’s time difference Kyogo replied;

“It was a strange feeling. The time difference was surprisingly okay.

“I’m the type who works hard to sleep, and the type who keeps sleeping.”
