Coetzee’s Celtic Contract Revealed

Bafana's Rivaldo Coetzee Has Agreed A Long-Term Contract With Celtic

By Joe Crann - Aug 23, 2017 02:53 PM @YesWeCrann
Rivaldo Coetzee’s representatives believe that he will ‘rise to the challenge’ at Glasgow Celtic after agreeing to a long-term deal with the Scottish giants.
 
 
The 20-year-old is expected to finalise his move to Brendan Rodgers’ side from Ajax Cape Town in the coming week, subject to a medical and obtaining a Scottish work permit.
 
Coetzee and his new head coach have both discussed the move so far, stating their happiness at the deal, and his agency, Prosport International, has also explained that they have high hopes for the Bafana Bafana international.
 
Michael Makaab Jnr spoke to the Siya crew this week about the upcoming transfer, also confirming the length of the contract that Coetzee will be signing at the club.  
 
 
He said, “It's an incredible opportunity for Riva to kick-start his career in Europe, and we have no doubt that he will rise to the challenge as he always does. Celtic are excited to have him and we are hoping that in the coming week, once certain formalities are out of the way, the boy will be in Scotland starting his new chapter.
 
"Both parties are happy with the personal terms, we have agreed to a three-year deal plus a one-year option."
 
Celtic secured a spot in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday evening after seeing off Astana from Kazakhstan.

Speaking to STV after Celtic qualified for the Champions League group stage, Rodgers praised 20-year-old defender. “He’s an outstanding young player that we think can help us, but it’s not complete yet,” said Rodgers. “He’s obviously in his preseason as well, but it’s not just for the now, it’s for the longer term. “He’s a player that can come straight in. “He’s a full international player, and he’s got great qualities, good defensive qualities, and if we can get that done, then it’ll be a very good signing for us.” Coetzee is expected to sign a three-year contract with Celtic.
