Alexandro Bernabei has joined Celtic from Lanús.
Bernabei has signed a five year deal with the champions of Scotland. As we reported last week, the 21 year old left back was linked with Celtic and the signing was announced on Thursday.
The Argentine has played for the Argentina U23 team and will wear the 25 shirt. Speaking to Celtic TV, here is what he said:
“I’m very happy to be here and I feel grateful to the club for giving me this opportunity.
“I feel proud to be playing in Europe because it was one of my dreams and I’m excited to train with and play with my new team-mates. The stadium is just incredible. The people, the club, team-mates, and the coaching staff are all incredible.
“I’m very excited and happy and I can’t wait to be playing in the Champions League. I’ve heard that the people are crazy, so I can’t wait to sense that feeling and emotion in Celtic Park.
“I spoke to the manager and he said he believed in me and my quality and that I can adapt to the team quickly.
“This is my first time in Scotland and Glasgow and I’ve seen the city on the internet and it looks very beautiful, so I’m excited to be able to get to know it more. The objective is to become champion and we want to achieve big things as a club and I would like to achieve all of our objectives this year.”
