Alan Brazil has predicted that Odsonne Edouard will be handed the number seven shirt at Celtic.
The shirt has been worn by legendary players like Henrik Larsson before and it would be a massive honour for the youngster if it happens.
Brazil said (quoted by Daily Record): “A little bit of news from Glasgow. By all accounts, Edouard could get the number 7 shirt at Celtic next year. There’s meant to be a magnificent seven coming, something to do with the sponsors. So if he stays at Celtic… hello, we’re going for 10-in-a-row!”
Edouard has been Celtic’s best player for a while now and the Scottish giants will be hoping to keep him at the club beyond this summer.
The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League and it will be interesting to see what happens in the coming months.
It seems that the number seven shirt could be an incentive for the player to continue at Parkhead. He could become a key part of Celtic’s history if he stays and performs like he has done so far this season.
Edouard has 28 goals to his name and he will be hoping to guide his side to another league title once football resumes. Currently, football across the globe has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The fans are likely to be pleased with the decision to hand him the prestigious number seven shirt as well. He has the quality to justify that honour.
