Potentially Better Than Moussa Dembele – Former Scotland Star On Celtic Striker
Barry Ferguson thinks that Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard is potentially a better player than former Bhoys hitman Moussa Dembele.
Edouard has been an important player for the Hoops over the last two seasons, leading many to compare the youngster to ex-Celtic striker Dembele, who scored 51 goals from 94 appearances for the club.
Having expressed his opinion that the 21-year-old could become better than Dembele before, Ferguson reiterated that the centre-forward has what it takes to outdo what the now Lyon man did at Celtic Park.
Ferguson, who admits that he has always been impressed with the France Under-21s star, believes the striker is unstoppable on his day.
The 41-year-old is positive that Edouard will soon make his way into France’s senior team if he keeps playing as he is playing now for France Under-21s.
“He’s a player, I think, who potentially could be better than Dembele“, Ferguson said on PLZ Soccer.
“I have said that a number of times and I have always been impressed.
“When he’s on his game, I think he’s unstoppable at times.
“He obviously continues it when he goes away with the French Under-21 squad.
“If he keeps producing performances like that, he’ll be in the [France] first-team squad.“
Edouard, who has scored nine goals for Celtic this season, scored five goals in two games for the France Under-21s side during the international break.
