Moritz Jenz set to join Schalke after dropping down pecking order at Celtic

It is being reported tonight that on-loan Celtic centre-back, Moritz Jenz is set to leave the Bhoys for a club in his homeland of Germany. The 23-year-old has fallen down the pecking order and it now appears that he will be seeking pastures new after all.

There was high hopes for Moritz when he joined the club during the summer transfer window, and after a very strong start to life in the hoops, he fell away and was replaced by the returning Carl Starfelt in Ange Postecoglou’s preferred central defensive partnership alongside American international, Cameron Carter-Vickers.

This evening, reports are widespread that the big defender will now travel home to Germany following a mixed spell at Celtic Park. Transfer guru, Gianluca Di Marzio have revealed that he has said goodbye to his teammates at Lennoxtown and will join up with Bundesliga club Schalke 04 before the close of the January transfer window.

I’m sure all the Celtic support would join in wishing Moritz all the very best for the future and sincerely thank him for his service these past few months since his move from FC Lorient in Ligue 1.

Thank you, Moritz.

About Author

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.

  1. Ange isn’t guilty of many mistakes, but I really think not tying big Mercedes down was a mistake of gigantic proportions!
    There is no comparison between Jenz and Starfelt!
    Big Mercedes was the complete player.
    Starfelt on the other hand was, is and will always be a bombscare.
    He reminds me of a Boyata in the early days. Actually, even latterly!
    He is far and away the worst centre back in Paradise. The scariest we’ve had for several years in fact! Just because we made the mistake of paying well over his real worth is no reason to risk the progress of the team and it’s goals by playing him every week!
    He is a disaster waiting to happen!
    I wish Jenz all the very best and thank him for his displays.
    Big mistake letting him go!
