A lot of Celtic fans are discussing former player Jorge Cadete after he has recently been speaking about the club.
The former Portuguese international signed for the club in 1996, per thecelticwiki, but only stayed at the club for one and a half seasons before leaving in May 1997. However, it seems the Celtic faithful wish he stayed for longer after he managed 38 goals in just 44 appearances.
Speaking about his time at the club and any regrets, Cadete said, via celticbible: “My biggest regret is not staying at Celtic for a long time but sometimes decisions are taken for you, and while I played for some big clubs after Celtic, there was never the same special feeling again and that makes me sad.”
Cadete was desperate to leave the club at the time, and it was noticed throughout the campaign after contract discussions were clearly struggling to come together, via thecelticwiki, and he eventually forced his way out of the club, moving to Spanish side Celta Vigo.
However his great form at the club has always left many wondering what could have been if he stayed, and clearly he feels the same way.
His comments haven’t received the greatest reception from many supporters, but has got many of the Celts fanbase discussing the forward.
Here is what they had to say following the comments:
