Kyogo didn’t get on the scoresheet on Sunday against Aberdeen, but if you want to show a young player how to work for your team – get them to watch the Celtic striker.
The Japanese star was everywhere on the pitch, constantly harassing defenders and wouldn’t allow the goalkeeper any time on the ball. Ange’s high press is in full swing with Kyogo leading the charge.
It can be frustrating for the wee man, he can be marked out of the game with such a low block played against Celtic week after week, he’s not always going to get joy in front of goals but he will certainly be a constant pain with his movement and speed.
We have to be careful with Kyogo because he’d played a good amount of the season with Vissel Kobe in Japan before moving to Celtic. Given his energy and the way he’s being asked to play, burnout could be around the corner.
Yokohama Marinos frontman Daizen Maeda fits the criteria, but will Celtic manage to land Ange’s former player?
