ALBIAN AJETI netted his fourth goal in five games for Celtic as the Swiss striker continued his fine start to life in Glasgow. Despite not being fully match fit, Ajeti joined from West Ham United for £5m this summer after failing to break into the first team at the London Stadium and one person that is delighted for him is his teammate Jeremie Frimpong.
Speaking to The Herald Scotland, Frimpong made an ominous prediction that will terrify Celtic’s opponents – that Ajeti will keep getting better and better.
“Albian is a natural finisher and I am really happy for him. He has worked hard in training since he came to the club. Albian came here to help us and to score goals. That is what he is doing.
“He is so cool in front of goal. He shows total composure but that’s a top striker for you. He never panics when he gets a chance. You also see his strength in holding the ball up and that is so important for the team.
“There are times when we play it up to him and we need Albian to take it in and let us get up the pitch. He is really good at that. He has made a great start and he will only get stronger.
“We have a great mix of strikers now. They all have their own qualities and that is so important.
“Every game is different and they will all have a big role to play for the team.”
Ajeti started ahead of Odsonne Edouard (who was rested) on Saturday and struck in the second half. Now, he will be hoping to strike up a partnership with Odsonne Edouard that will leave defences cowering in their wake. The prospect of a 3-5-2 involving Elyounoussi on the left as well as Edouard and Ajeti in attack is quite exciting for supporters.
Ajeti made 12 appearances in London for the Hammers following an £8m move and will be hoping to prove them wrong with a successful start to life in Glasgow.
