Karamoko Dembele Has Been Training With the Celtic First-Team

Karamoko Dembele Has Been Training With the Celtic First-Team

Celtic’s 13-year-old prodigy Karamoko Dembele has been training with the club’s first-team, striker Moussa Dembele has revealed.

Earlier this month, the diminutive teenager was included in the Hoops’ Under-20 development squad for a match against Hearts, and came off the bench for an eight-minute cameo.

His appearance sparked international interest in the youngster, with news outlets from all over the world heralding Dembele as a potential footballing superstar.

And it appears his incredible assent through the ranks at Parkhead is continuing apace, after he was included in a session with Brendan Rodgers and the club’s senior side.

Revealing his inclusion, Moussa Dembele explained via the BBC that he and his team-mates went easy on his namesake, saying: “We didn’t want to kick him because he is still so small.

“He is a good talent but we have to wait and see how he will improve as a player.”

Karamoko Dembele’s involvement in first-team training, at the tender age of just 13, really shows how much Celtic rate the talented midfielder, but is too soon for him?

Should he be allowed to flourish amongst players at his own age level? Or should his development be accelerated at every opportunity?
