ANGE POSTECOGLOU is said to be unsure whether Karamoko Dembele will stay at Celtic after the summer. The manager revealed that both parties were set to sit down and discuss the winger’s future.
The Athletic reports that the starlet is on his way out, with it unlikely that the club and the player will reenter negotiations regarding his future.
This is sad news. The player was hyped up from a young age and had many fans excited. Videos of the then young teenager doing his tricks and flicks had gone viral, and Karamoko’s social media accounts skyrocketed.
However, behind the scenes, things haven’t been too good.
CeltsAreHere understand the winger was reluctant to go out on loan to a lower league Scottish side in the last season when Luca Connell made the switch to Queens Park . Furthermore, we understand that the player’s general attitude and application has not been to a standard expected.
The Athletic also reported that Dembele had a fall-out with Neil Lennon after asking for more minutes; the manager wasn’t pleased with this.
Ultimately, the player has let himself down by the sounds of things. Still young, he has the chance to turn things around. For all involved, it seems like a fresh start is required. Postecoglou’s style would have benefited the winger, who can potentially represent the Ivory Coast future.
