Daniel Arzani has only played twelve minutes of football for Celtic since making the move from Australia to Celtic via Manchester City. The little winger tore his ACL during his first outing at Dundee last year.
The youngster has been on the shelf since but he has been spotted back on the Lennoxtown training field as he steps up his recovery. As we sit mid-September, the Socceroo hasn’t been given a timeframe to return to action.
However, the player is being earmarked for a role in Australia’s Olympic squad in January. If the player is selected and that is a high probability according to SunSport then the player will miss up to a month of action.
This might not seem like a big deal because he isn’t in the side at present but it could put Neil Lennon off playing the midfielder if he’s going to miss games early next year and that would have a detrimental effect on his overall Celtic status. The player’s loan deal is up next summer and right now Arzani looks a million miles away from making an impact.
