Celtic Hold On To Blooming Defender Amid Interests From Elsewhere: A Masterstroke By Rodgers?

Celtic were brutally ruthless the last term as they bulldozed past their domestic rivals with relative ease. The Celts clinched the Scottish Premiership title, Scottish Cup as well as the League Cup and appeared to be miles ahead of the other Scottish sides on the domestic soil. Under the tutelage of Brendan Rodgers, the Glasgow based club added strength to strength and did look like a formidable outfit last season.

However, it has come to the notice that the reigning league champions haven’t been as busy as their arch rivals Rangers have been in terms of beefing up their squad this summer. Nonetheless, they do have an arsenal filled with quality and also have a decent blend of experienced figures and promising youngsters.

One of the most intriguing aspects in the way Rodgers has discharged his duties in his inclination towards making the full use of the youngsters he has at his disposal. Reports have emerged that the Hoops have decided to keep their blossoming starlet in their ranks in the upcoming campaign instead of shipping him out on loan to brush up his calibre.

Signed from Ipswich Town last month on a four-year deal after impressing during his loan spell with Aldershot Town, Benyu fell under the limelight during his outing against Lyon despite their 4-0 loss as he grabbed the opportunity with both hands and has tempted the former Liverpool boss to change his perception and at the onset, it does look like it would make perfect sense.

Benyu is a central defender who has an intense knack to score goals and passes the ball really well. He has an intriguing level of energy of toiling relentlessly throughout the pitch and is versatile enough to ply his trade as a central attacking midfielder as well.

He is good with the deal balls and possesses the requisite know-how to orchestrate the team at the centre of the park. The 19-year-old always intends to get himself involved in the game and will offer a good option to Rodgers from the bench.

The likes of Kieran Tierney, Moussa Dembele and Patrick Roberts did shine under the stewardship of Rodgers and there lies no apparent reason as to why Benyu cannot cultivate a similar success story. At the Celtic Park, he would get the due attention and can take his career to a whole new level if the scenarios offer him the scope to thrive, although much would depend upon the commitment and perseverance he puts on display in the Celtic shirt.
