  • Olivier Ntcham aims to win more trophies at Paradise

    Olivier Ntcham aims to win more trophies at Paradise

    By: Joe Donnelly on 09 Nov, 2018 17:33

  • OLIVIER Ntcham has stated that his desire to win trophies influenced his decision to extend his stay at Paradise.

    Speaking to the media for the first time since penning a new four-year deal – which will see him remain at the club until the summer of 2022 – the Frenchman said the decision was a big one for his family, but one he was pleased to make.  

    “I spoke to the manager when we returned from the summer break,” he said. “It took a little bit of time, but we made a decision. Now it’s happened and I’m happy about that.

    “This was a big decision for me and my family to make, but we’ve made the right one. I came here last year, and everything was new for me. We made this decision because I won my first trophy here and I was really proud and happy about that.”

    The 22-year-old stressed his focus now lies squarely with the Hoops, and expressed delight for his team-mates who beat RB Leipzig 2-1 in the UEFA Europe League on Thursday night.

    Having suffered a hamstring injury against Hearts in the semi-final of the League Cup last month, the industrious midfielder is nearing full fitness, and is keen to push on and add to his growing honours list.  

    “Personally I want to score more goals than last year, and I want to win more trophies," he said. "I want to go further in the Europa League. I want to go far in the Europa League and have the chance to do something special.

    “I watched the Leipzig game, and I was really proud of my team. We won in the end, so I was really happy for them. I expect Celtic to qualify to the knock-out stages of the competition, because I think we can challenge the other teams in our group. I hope we have the chance to do something special.”
