Kyogo should apologise to Celtic fans after 'disrespectful' media reveal - pundit
Kyogo Furuhashi should apologise to the Celtic fans for his comments about his Premier League dream, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker claimed Kyogo should keep his ambitions private and only tell his agent and close friends.
The Japan international has enjoyed a fine start to life at Celtic and his eight goals in 11 games have earned him instant cult hero status.
He is currently away with his country on international duty and conducted an interview with Japanese outlet Number Web.
As translated by journalist Dan Orlowitz the attacker revealed: “Good results could open that path for me [to move to the Premier League].”
Asked for his assessment of Kyogo’s comments, Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “I don’t think he should say that.

“They’re the sort of things that you keep to yourself and you don’t mention. You might say it to your agent or your close friends.
“But you don’t say it in interviews because it’s disrespectful to Celtic. I’m sure he’ll get told about doing that and that he should apologise.
“You’ve got to be respectful about Celtic because you’ve only been there a minute.
“Don’t get carried away by a few good games and start talking about the Premier League. Just concentrate on doing your best for Celtic and winning the title back for them.”
Kyogo moved to Parkhead from J League club Vissel Kobe over the summer.
Four of his eight Celtic goals have come in five Scottish Premiership appearances and he has set himself the target of 20 goals.
