Ghana midfielder John Arwuah has strongly defended his decision to ink a deal with Bloemfontein Celtic of South Africa.
The former SuperSport United midfielder told the club’s website it has been a long dream to play for Celtic and believes the move is a stepping stone to greater heights.
“When the management of the club told me they were interested in me I didn't think twice,” the 26-year-old said. “I just told myself that I should take this opportunity. I've always liked Celtic's style of play and the way they keep possession of the ball.”
“Unlike other clubs that prefer direct football, Celtic make build-ups from the back and move forward with the ball. They don't just play long balls from the keeper to the strikers,” Arwuah analysed revealing how long he has been admiring the club from afar.
The Ghanaian was part of a swap deal which saw Clifford Mulenga going in the opposite direction to Maritzburg United.
He feels Celtic are big enough to make an impact in the Premier Soccer League (PSL).
“It feels great to be part of Bloemfontein Celtic family. Celtic are one of the biggest clubs in the PSL.
"If you can take Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United; the next team you can mention is Celtic. So I believe I have made the right choice joining them," he pointed out.
"I have always been fond of Celtic. I can't wait to make my debut in front of their supporters. Their supporters are the best in South Africa and they are the other reason I agreed to join Celtic."
