Marvin Compper Gives First Interview Since Joining ‘One of World’s Biggest Clubs’

Marvin Compper Gives First Interview Since Joining ‘One of World’s Biggest Clubs’

Celtic‘s new defender Marvin Compper has given his first interview since joining the Hoops, and has claimed he’s signed for one of the biggest clubs in world football.

The German 32-year-old centre-back has joined on a two-and-a-half year contract from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig earlier today, and will officially become a part of Brendan Rodgers’ squad when the transfer window opens on January 1.

He sat down and gave an exclusive interview to Celtic TV after arriving being paraded at the club’s training ground earlier today, and whilst he insisted he was in Scotland to win titles, he also claimed he was wooed the Scottish Premiership by one of the biggest clubs in world football.

Speaking via the club’s official website, he said: “When I first heard of Celtic’s interest I was immediately very keen and eager to come.

“They are a club who play for titles and that is something which has been lacking throughout my career.

“I was playing in good teams but never won a title. This is something I’m really looking forward to, having the possibility to play in big games for big wins.

“Celtic is a club that is always going for the big wins. I’ve played in important games in Italy and Germany. I was in a cup final in Italy and we lost, unfortunately, but I hope I can add silverware to my career here.

“Celtic are obviously one of the biggest clubs in the world.

“The tradition, history and the incredible supporters are what have stood out to me.

“They are a very big name, even in Germany. Everyone in Germany knows about the ambience in the stadium and it’s seen as a football-crazy place. Celtic is a big name not only in Germany but worldwide.”

What do you think of Celtic’s first capture of the winter window? Surely defensive reinforcements have been needed for some time now – and could there be any other defenders on the way too?

What do you think?
