Daniel Arzani has confirmed that he will not be returning to Celtic for next season, information that all Hoops fans knew was going to happen.
The attacking midfielder got injured on his brief debut for Celtic and ended up out on the side-lines for a year or so.
When Arzani eventually got his fitness back, Neil Lennon had already selected his pool of players and the Aussie wasn’t one of them.
Celtic fans never really got to see enough of Arzani and the player himself said there was no bad feelings towards the club or Lennon as they had a job to do.
Speaking in an interview during knock-down in Australia, Arzani will await instructions from Manchester City.
“Holland comes up because it’s a selling league and they develop a lot of really good talent there,” Arzani told the world game.. “But they’re not the only league to have done that.”
“It’s been a really tough last two seasons for me. Celtic’s been tough, there are a lot of good people there and it’s a good club, but the most important thing for me is game time and I wasn’t getting that.
“I was getting frustrated with injuries and things like that and the most important thing now is to look forward and go somewhere I think I’ll get game time.”
“It’s tough for Lenny – he came back for his second gig as Celtic manager with a lot of weight on his shoulders in going for 10 in a row,”
“I’ve been coming back from injury and he’s never seen me play before, so there’s no way I can blame him. He’s a really good guy and a really good coach. It was just unfortunate circumstances.”
