AC Milan Legend Andriy Shevchenko Lavishes Praise on Celtic’s Maryan Shved

Celtic‘s new signing Maryan Shved is being tipped to reach the very top of the game – by none other than AC Milan legend Andriy Shevchenko.

Ukrainian winger Shved has just joined up with the Hoops in a deal worth around £2 million, having spent the second-half of last season on-loan in his homeland with Karparty Lviv.

The 21-year-old’s impressive form throughout last season has seen him called-up to the Ukraine senior squad, which is currently managed by arguably the country’s greatest-ever player, Shevchenko.

And the ex-Chelsea forward has been keeping a close eye on Shved, and it seems he has nothing but positive things to say about the up-and-coming wide player.

Speaking via the Daily Record, Shevchenko said: “I’ve been watching him closely for the past two weeks in our training camp.

“It’s clear he has a lot of talent.

“There is still work to be done, but he has progressed hugely.

“He has just made a very big transfer for a massive club like Celtic and he is motivated to show them what he can do when he goes to Scotland.

“There’s no doubt he has improved a lot and he will go on to be a big player for Ukraine.”

Shved was an unused substitute in the 5-0 win over Serbia on Friday, and it remains to be seen if he’ll be used by Shevchenko in this evening’s Euro 2020 qualifier at home to Luxembourg.

But what do you make of the legendary ex-striker’s comments?

Have Celtic managed to unearth a real gem in Marian Shved?
