Celtic fans have been left unimpressed by Olivier Ntcham after stating his desire to leave the club to French press this weekend.
As reported by L’Equipe, the midfielder feels his development is best served by making a move to a bigger league and playing against a better standard of opposition, also revealing he was disappointed not to join Porto last summer.
How can Celtic improve next season? A Hoops fan tells us how in the video below…
Ntcham made 30 starts for Celtic last season, less than half of their games across 2018/19, as he struggled to cement his position as a fundamental cog in the starting XI.
There’s no doubt he has talent, but he’s yet to string together consistent enough form that would put him in the conversation of being one of the best players at the club.
Celtic supporters don’t understand his comments, taking to Twitter over the last 48 hours to share their thoughts…
You barely get in the starting line up these days. Get a grip son!

It’s up to Ntcham to SHOW that Scottish football is not at the required level by destroying the opposition. If he is lazy no-one will pay…

He actually played like he wanted to leave last summer

Good player, but nowhere near as good as he thinks

See if he dominated every opponent he played in Scotland i would say fair enough. The guy lack application far too often and made some of the most basic mistakes against poor opponents. He won’t be a massive loss just a massive disappointment

Can usually call it within the first 10 minutes if he is going to be on his game. Callum McGregor’s and Ryan Christie’s progression blow his stance out of the water. Au Revoir.

Bossed by St Mirren midfielders. There’s no evidence he’s able to perform consistently at a high level.

Two games at ibrox he was the worst player on the pitch, won’t be missed

You never turned up last season son. Heard all this clap trap before.
