Celtic: Seoane and Nsame a dream duo to consider

Celtic’s season has been a disastrous state of affairs at all reaches of the football club.

Whether it’s the Hoops hierarchy getting an earful from the Green Brigade or the playing staff dishonouring the famous Bhoys jersey with abject performances, it has not been a good campaign.

They’ve now also been missing a permanent manager in the Parkhead dugout for the best part of nine weeks.

It has been over two months since Neil Lennon departed Glasgow but the club still isn’t really any closer to welcoming a successor.

Eddie Howe has long been talked about and a deal is thought to be reaching a conclusion.

Though, if Dominic McKay and Dermot Desmond have an opportunity to change their minds and perform a U-turn, they should turn towards Young Boys coach Gerardo Seoane.

Football FanCast have already waxed lyrical about his qualities and why he’d be an ideal fit for the Bhoys.

Should Celtic appoint Gerardo Seoane?

Definitely

Definitely

No way

No way

For starters, he plays a very offensive brand of football. When the 42-year-old’s team won the Swiss top-flight in 2018/19, they scored a mighty haul of 99 goals, 28 more than any other side in the division.

They are one of the most vertical teams in Europe too, playing an average of 82.81 progressive passes per 90 minutes. This would be ideal for Celtic because the Glaswegian side average 85.05 per 90 themselves.

At a time where Celtic are in such a big transition, they will also need to find a manager that’s adept at working with young players. Fortunately, Seoane is an expert in this regard.

His Young Boys team is built around a collective group of players who are yet to reach their prime.

Seoane’s side possesses just three players over the age of 30 while six players in the squad are below the age of 23. Only five individuals are over the age of 25; typically the peak of a footballer’s career.

One of the stand out individuals for Young Boys down the years has been Jean-Pierre Nsame.

Coincidentally, he’s been linked with a move to Celtic in the last few days. He has netted 96 goals for the Swiss champions, 82 of which have been scored under Seoane’s watch.

Speaking about the striker earlier this season, his manager commented: “Jean-Pierre Nsamé has had an extraordinary season. He has really progressed especially in terms of taking responsibility in the team.”

Can you name all of these obscure Celtic players? We'll start with an easy one...

Seoane added: “He is very physical, with an unbelievable ability in front of goal.”

Therefore, if McKay can lure the pairing to Paradise this summer, he’d potentially create a dream duo.

Seoane appears a perfect fit on the manager front while Nsame is a fearsome striker, someone who could replace Odsonne Edouard at Celtic if he finally departs.

AND in other news, Lennon will have every right to be fuming with Desmond after big Celtic manager update…
