Celtic: News of Eboue Kouassi’s loan move to Genk divides opinion among these fans

The 22-year-old, who came to Parkhead from FC Krasnodar three years ago in a £3m deal (as per STV Sport), had drifted to the periphery of the Hoops’ squad, having not played or even been named on the bench in 2019/20 prior to being loaned out. The Ivory Coast native has made just 22 appearances at Celtic in his time at the club, all of which came under Brendan Rodgers’ watch, and has not been considered for first team action by current Hoops boss Neil Lennon.

Injuries and illness have ravaged Kouassi’s abortive Celtic career, with the midfielder missing two months in 2017 due to an ankle injury and then rupturing his cruciate ligament against Hearts in October 2018, which remains his most recent appearance for the club. Shortly after he joined the Hoops, he was struck down by malaria, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

The news of Kouassi’s loan move to Genk split opinion among these Celtic fans on Twitter, with some continuing to have faith in the 22-year-old and others believing he has no future at Parkhead:

Were Celtic right to loan out Kouassi for the rest of the season? Did he deserve more of a chance at Parkhead or should the club have just sold him altogether? Give us your views in the comments section below!
