& # 039; Surely a way & # 039; – Manager Alerts The 23 year old could be on his way to Celtic – originally published on Sportslens.com
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers dropped a notice that Filip Benkovic was in could return to Celtic this season.
He said (via Daily Record ): “It is certainly a possibility. It's a huge club and it did very well there. We weren't in contact but he's back now and we'll see what happens.
“Celtic would be a great move for him. He's the age he really needs to play and that didn't quite happen in Cardiff.
"I would never accuse another manager of not playing against someone because circumstances can change all the time, but unfortunately it didn't work
" It's really very simple, it's about a place now who he can go to next and get some playing time. ”
The 23-year-old was on loan with the Scottish club in 2018, but his time was plagued by injuries.
The Croatian hopes to prove himself at Celtic when he returns to the club.
Benkovic was on loan at Cardiff City this season but has now returned to the Premier League club It will be interesting to see if Celtic take a move this month to sign Benkovic on a loan deal.
There is no doubt that Celtic needs to improve defensively and think about everyone would be the ideal replacement for Chris Jullien, who suffers from a knee injury this season.
Celtic fans are sure to be delighted with their former manager's comments on Benkovic's possible move in January, and it remains to be seen whether the two clubs can work out a transfer before the window closes.
Celtic urgently needs reinforcements and a quality signature like Benkovic would certainly help them a lot in the title race.
Benkovic is required to play regularly at this stage of his career, and it is unlikely that he will get this opportunity from the likes of Jonny Evans, Wesley Fofana and Caglar Soyuncu in Leicester.
