Celtic Star named by L’Equipe in list of World’s Most Outstanding Young Players

YOUNG CELTIC STAR Karamoko Dembélé has been named by respected French newspaper L’Equipe in their list of the World’s most outstanding young players set to revolutionise the game, but suggest that he’ll have to move on from Celtic in due course if he is to reach the very top of the game.

“Vif et agile, l’attaquant britannique semble destiné à une grande carrière, même si des interrogations l’escortent encore, notamment au sujet de son choix de sélection,” L’Equipe state in their list of world’s best young players and these remarks, roughly translated below, seem to suggest that in order to achieve the global status that his remarkable talent merits.

“Vivid and agile, the British striker seems destined for a great career, although questions still escort him, especially about his choice of selection,” is that rough translation we promised.

“L’Equipe have compiled a list of the six most outstanding young players set to revolutionise the game and 16-year-old Karamoko Dembélé has made the cut.

The French publication have been blown away by the playmaker and reckon he has all the tools required to become a world star,” Celtic Bible has just tweeted.

Karamoko Dembélé has of course been linked with an astonishing number of clubs as he has developed at Celtic and also made an impact in international football through various age groups. Most of the speculation this week can be put down to quiet news days for the sports desks due to the international break and also a sizeable amount of click bait content, the ‘Arsenal got a bargain buying Kieran Tierney from Celtic for £25m, so will they go back for Karamoko Dembélé?’ kinda thing. You’ve probably seen it.

The 16 year old made his first team debut for Celtic against Hearts on Trophy Day back in May, when he came on at the interval and impressed the 60,000 support greatly. Hopefully he’ll get plenty of opportunity and a good number of season playing in Paradise before he even considers a move abroad to the likes of Barcelona or Real Madrid.
