Brendan Rodgers has been full of praise for his star striker Moussa Dembele this season. After another man of the match performance against Inverness at the weekend, bagging another hat-trick in consecutive weeks the striker is taking his game to a new level.
The Celtic manager has likened Moussa’s potential to other players he brought through during his time down south with Liverpool and drew comparisons between the French striker and the now Milan star Suso who has been lighting up Serie A,
“He’s (Dembele) just turned 20 years of age. I’ve worked with some really top young talents. I took Coutinho from Inter Milan at 19, Sterling at 17, Suso I put in the team and he’s at AC Milan now.
“He’s certainly up there with the big talents. He has a fantastic mentality which helps him. He has talent but he’s also very focused on being a footballer.”
Rodgers has spoken at length about the need for his players to live, breathe, eat and sleep football in order to propel themselves and the club to the next level and Moussa is certainly firing on all cylinders in order to do so.
The manager has a talent of bringing out the best in players, with the Irishman’s guidance and Moussa’s raw talent, magic will continue to be made.
