Erik Sviatchenko’s future at Celtic has been under at least a little doubt for some time. Linked to several Premier League clubs over the past year, there’s been concern in Denmark that Sviatchenko perhaps isn’t progressing well enough or quickly enough under Brendan Rodgers and needs to look for other options.
The second half of last season was frustrating for Sviatchenko, and he wasn’t an automatic first choice for Rodgers. That led the Celtic defender to speak about his frustrations to the Danish media in April, which further put some doubt around his future.
Danish newspaper BT have had a look at the future of several of their compatriots, and given out public advice over whether they should stick or twist this summer, for Sviatchenko it was a unanimous twist.
BT have asked three Danish football pundits about the situation, and it’s thought the 25 year old is too good for Celtic bench, with Morten Brrun adding Celtic are “not a big international team”, so not somewhere it’s ok to accept being a substitute.
Sviatchenko is advised to try his luck in the Premier League, Championship, or back home in Denmark.
