Marian Shved’s dad is predicting that his son is about to join a new club.
The winger looks like being remembered as one of the strangest Celtic signings of all times with just three brief substitute appearances- totalling less than 45 minutes- to mark his time in Scotland.
From before he put pen to paper on a deal Brendan Rodgers announced that he already had a million wingers. A month after Shved signed and was loaned back to Karpaty Lviv the former Liverpool boss was back in English football managing Leicester.
Shved returned to Scotland last May to prepare for pre-season training but after featuring during the matches in Austria and Switzerland things just fizzled out even though Scott Sinclair and Lewis Morgan left the club in January.
Discussing his son’s prospects Vasily Shved told The Sun:
I think there will be clarity about Marian’s next club very soon. It’s in the hands of his agent now. The Scottish league was ended prematurely and Marian returned home due to the coronavirus and he kept himself in very good shape here.
He’s 22 years old, plays for a top European team and is in the Ukraine squad, so he is fine. He still has a great future ahead of him
A loan deal seems more likely that a permanent move but it’s hard to see Shved returning to Celtic to make the impact that his You Tube clips promised.
