Uefa today posted a video from last season of Kyogo Furuhashi scoring against Ferencvaros, with that mouth-watering assist from Jota. The Portuguese star is rumoured to be close to putting pen to paper on a deal which will see him move from Benfica to Celtic Park full-time after his successful loan spell with the club.
The player had been on quite the adventure this pre-season – spotted Ibiza then in New York enjoying some well deserved downtime. Now it appears that the winger should be the Bhoys third signing of the summer window, after Daizen Maeda and Cameron Carter-Vickers.
Jota’s sublime assist for Kyogo in the Europa League match versus the Hungarians was a sight to behold. There is not many times Celtic fans will have seen a pass – that sets up a goal into the bargain – quite like that from the trickster. It certainly brought the house down when the masses of supporters witnessed the passage of play.
Hopefully we will see much more from this man in the coming years…
