The promising Celtic youngster seems to be edging closer towards a Parkhead exit in the summer despite having joined the club just last year.
One of the most promising things for a manager has to be seeing a player with all the talent in the world failing to translate it on the pitch. Unfortunately for Neil Lennon, he has not even been able to put one of his most promising youngsters on the pitch as a result of his problems settling down at Celtic. And now, an exit just after a solitary season might be on the cards.
Marian Shved joined Celtic from Karpaty Lviv in January 2019 only to be loaned back to the Ukrainian club for the rest of the season. As a result, he has been with the Hoops for only a single season and one that was cut short by by the global pandemic even at that.
The fact that Shved barely featured despite coming off the back of a stunning season in Ukraine, scoring 15 goals in 26 appearances, confused Celtic fans. Neil Lennon would publicly admit though that the winger had failed to adjust to life in Scotland which was the major reason behind his absence in the first-team plans.
The talent is quite clearly visible in Shved though and Celtic fans would have been hoping that he would get his chance next season. That might not end up being the case though as it looks like Hungarian champions Ferencvaros will make a move for the promising youngster.
Ferencvaros manager, Sergie Rebrov, didn’t deny the fact that the club might be interested in Shved. As reported by the Daily Record, he said:
“I don’t want to confirm or deny my interest in Marian Shved.
“Of course I would be happy to work with another Ukrainian in the squad, but there are a number of players in all positions we are looking at.
“We are always looking to improve the squad.”
As far as admissions in the footballing world goes, that sounds like they are very interested in Shved. Celtic will have to letting him go on a permanent basis though as he is too good of a prospect to let go of on the cheap.
Maybe give him a loan season to rediscover his form and if he is insistent on leaving, then sell at a higher transfer fee after that. Because after a season that has seen him make just 2 appearances and in a post-pandemic market, there’s not much Celtic can expect.
