Patryk Klimala is the new Bhoy in town but it might not be too long before he becomes very popular with the Celtic fans. One way to do that would be to bang in goals: something that we hope he will do more often than not. But another way to gain popularity among the masses would be to profess his love and loyalty towards the club, something that he did by revealing that he rejected the chance to join FC Copenhagen in order to play for the Hoops.
Celtic are set to face FC Copenhagen in the last 32 of the Europa League and could have actually come up against Klimala if he had not decided to join the Glasgow side over the Danish champions. Speaking with the Daily Record, the 21-year-old said:
“It’s true there was a bid from Copenhagen on the table.
“But as soon as Celtic came in with their offer I wasn’t considering any of the other clubs. I’m looking forward to playing against Copenhagen in Europe now.
“Every player’s dream is to be able to play in the European cups, not only the Europa League but the Champions League too. There is a different atmosphere in the European games, it’s special, and I am looking forward to experiencing that at Celtic Park.”
Klimala made his Celtic debut yesterday when he came on as a 79th minute substitute in place of Leigh Griffiths against Partick Thistle in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup. The Polish striker has already scored 7 goals this season and will be looking to add to that tally soon in the Green-and-White of Celtic.
