Kyogo Furuhashi has been one of Celtic’s most important players over the last two seasons. His goals have made a material difference in the club’s double success in his first season at the club and in winning the treble last season.
The departure of Ange Postecoglou to Spurs has led to recent speculation linking him with a move to the English Premier League to be reunited with the former Celtic boss.
But now, the Japanese striker has spoken out about next season and the popular Celtic player said that he is looking forward to competing in the Champions League.
Kyogo said [Daily Record], “I am very happy to be part of this big club and to play against the biggest clubs in the world.
“This season we will also get the opportunity to play in the Champions League, so just even the thought of playing in that atmosphere excites me so much.
“I want to do everything I can to get the win for the team and put a smile on everyone’s face.”
These comments from the 28-year-old sound like a clear message that he intends to be at the club for the coming season.
Kyogo has been the subject of intense speculation over the last few weeks and after he signed off for the season after representing Japan in the Kirin Cup, Celtic fans could be forgiven for worrying about the future of their star striker.
Kyogo will be an important player for Brendan Rodgers next season. The new Celtic manager has already namechecked the Japanese international after comparing him to the likes of Jamie Vardy and Luis Suarez.
It will be very interesting to see how Rodgers plans to help Kyogo kick up a gear next season because if he can better the 34 goals he achieved under Postecoglou, then the Celtic fans are in for a real treat next season.
