Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard insists he is under no pressure to perform at the club despite being the club’s record signing.
The French youngster made his loan move from Paris Saint-Germain permanent last summer when the Scottish champions paid £9m for his services and despite the financial commitment, Edouard has maintained that he’s transfer fee won’t dictate his performance on the pitch.
“I don’t feel any pressure being Celtic’s main striker,” Edouard said, according to Evening Times.
“I am calm and I just concentrate on doing what I do best, which is to play football.”
“When I am playing, I give everything for my team. I am impervious to pressure. I have a quiet strength about me.”
“I had a good chat with the manager,” Edouard said about speaking with Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers during the season.
“He told me about his projects and ambitions and spoke about what he wanted to do with me.”
“I appreciated his words and it just felt like a good feeling with him. I immediately decided there and then I would sign.”
“I needed a new challenge and you don’t refuse a club like Celtic.”
“Brendan Rodgers is a very good coach. From day one, he spoke to me a lot and always encourages me. He is very experienced.”
“He has made me a better player and I feel I am progressing very well under him.”
“He’s an open coach who is very close with his players. I love his management style and the way he wants to play football.”
