John Arwuah

New Bloemfontein Celtic recruit John Arwuah is excited to have joined Phunya Sele Sele and, he says he is looking forward to contributing to the success of the club.

The Ghananian international joined Celtic from SuperSport United last month in a swap deal which saw ex-Celt Clifford Mulenga going the opposite direction.

?It feels great to be part of Bloemfontein Celtic family. Celtic are one of the biggest clubs in the PSL. If you can take Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United; the next team you can mention is Celtic. So I believe I have made the right choice joining them,? Arwuah told the club?s website.

?When the management of the club told me they were interested in me I didn?t think twice. I just told myself that I should take this opportunity. I?ve always liked Celtic?s style of play and the way they keep possession of the ball. Unlike other clubs that prefer direct football, Celtic make build-ups from the back and move forward with the ball. They don?t just play long balls from the keeper to the strikers. I?ve seen a couple of their games and have also played against them,? he says.

?I have always been fond of Celtic. I can?t wait to make my debut in front of their supporters. Their supporters are the best in South Africa and they are the other reason I agreed to join Celtic. There is nothing nicer than playing in front of a big crowd. Players are always motivated playing in full houses. What I?ve heard is that the club is aiming for a top four finish next season. So I?ll be happy to help them achieve that goal. If possible we can challenge for the League honours,? he adds.

Arwuah, who will be turning 27 on September 1, says he is enjoying life in Bloemfontein.

?I like it here. The Bloemfontein people have been good to me since I arrived in the city. They always greet me with a smile and It feels great to be part of them. Hopefully I will continue to enjoy my stay in the Free State.?
