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.
“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.”
