Video: Olivier Ntcham Says He’d be a Boxer if He Wasn’t Playing Football

Olivier Ntcham insists he’d have been a boxer had he not fulfilled his dream of becoming a professional football player.

The Frenchman’s big physique has been regularly mentioned since he signed for Celtic in a £4.5million move from Manchester City last week.

So it’s no surprise he would be beating people up right now IF he hadn’t made it as a footballer.

Speaking to Celtic TV this week, Ntcham was asked what he would be if he wasn’t kicking a ball for a living and that’s when he told of his boxing talent.

He also told of his breakdancing abilities as a youngster and no doubt came out with some more surprise revelations during the interview:

Ntcham is settling into life at Celtic and could feature in his first competitive game for the club when they take on Linfield in Glasgow tomorrow night.

Brendan Rodgers’ men take a 2-0 lead into the second leg of their Champions League qualifying second round tie and he may decide to throw Ntcham in with the pressure off.
