Weah Blow as United States include Timo in FIFA U20 World Cup Squad

TIMO WEAH has today been named in the United States squad for the U20 FIFA World Cup that appears to rules him OUT of the Scottish Cup Final and the popular forward, on loan from Paris Saint Germain until the end of the season, appears to have suggested via his Instagram account that he’s now left the building entirely as far as playing for Celtic this season is concerned.

The Celtic Star exclusively broke the news that Weah was on his way to Paradise on Christmas Eve morning last year. And we also told you that PSG were looking to extend his contract so that he could go out on loan for 18 months.

However Goal are now reporting that Weah could have negotiated a compromise and might be at Hampden after all!

“Weah will miss the U.S. team’s opening World Cup match, on 24 May against Ukraine as he prepares to play in the Scottish Cup final on 25 May with Celtic. He will look to join the U.S. team after that match, and could be available for the U.S. team’s group match against Nigeria on 27 May,” the site reports.

Celtic are in pole position to bring Weah back next season, just as long as all parties are happy with the way things have gone. Neil Lennon wanted to start Timo against Kilmarnock a fortnight ago but the player had a back spasm problem that ruled him out.

He did get a start up at Pittodrie last Saturday when Celtic got over the line with a fine 3-0 win and with Neil Lennon suggesting the team for Sunday was going to be along the same lines as at Pittodrie, then Weah was looking likely to play or at least feature.

Hopefully Goal are correct and Timo will be at Hampden.

Timo Weah scored four goals for Celtic in his 17 appearances.
