Odsonne Edouard has no regrets about putting his career ahead of boyhood dreams.
Two years ago the striker opted to join Celtic on loan rather than watch from the stands as Neymar and Kylian Mbappe racked up the goals for Paris Saint Germain.
Edouard might have made a couple of appearances off the bench for the French giants, instead he took a chance joining Celtic as the third striker in a side that only used one man up front.
After a few appearances and goals he notched a December hat-trick at home to Motherwell before stamping his name over the Glasgow derby with a winner at Ibrox and double in a title clincher on home soil.
Rather than use that season to return to PSG and fight for a place he made his move to Celtic a permanent one that has restarted his international career with three goals for the French u-21 side in wins over Albania and the Czech Republic.
Picking up on an interview with Canal Plus, Get Football France reports Edouard saying:
“Things are working well (with Celtic), but it is down to work. I give everything and that is also important on the pitch. PSG is the club of my heart, I still have friends of mine over there who grew up with me in the youth set-up. For the moment, it is not really in my head (to come back to PSG). For the moment I am playing, I am enjoying myself and we will see what happens in the future.”
Next midweek Edouard returns to France with Celtic taking on Rennes in the Europa League.
