Celtic target Ardon Jashari was criticised in front of his teammates by his manager and sporting director before FC Luzern’s game against St Gallen on Saturday, according to reports in the Swiss media.
FC Luzern head coach Mario Frick and head of sport Remo Meyer were not happy about the midfielder’s attitude, but their comments did not go down too well with the player. When asked about the incident, Frick played down the seriousness of the altercation:
“There are two or three things that I haven’t liked about him lately. I told him that. Ardon and I have a very close relationship. There’s nothing wrong between him and me.”
Celtic, Porto, Atalanta and Lazio were all mentioned as potential suitors for the Swiss international earlier this month, with Luzern reportedly having set an €8m (£7m) asking price.
Jashari has a growing reputation
After making his debut for his country back in September, the 20-year-old was named in Switzerland’s squad for the World Cup squad a couple of months later.
Jashari only made a brief cameo at the tournament, coming on in the 6-1 defeat to Portugal during the first knockout round, but he is thought to have a bright future in the game. Whether this latest controversy will affect Celtic’s interest in the midfielder, we shall have to wait and see.
