Jeremie Frimpong: I want to become the best right-back in the world

Ghanaian youngster Jeremie Frimpong is aiming for the very top after shining on his Celtic debut.

The defender was named man of the match after coming into the side for Wednesday's 5-0 Betfred Cup win over Partick Thistle.
 
The 18-year-old signed from Manchester City on the final day of the transfer window and has propelled himself into Neil Lennon's plans.
 
"It was amazing, a dream come true," the Dutch full-back said. "It was my first professional game and the fans – I love them already. To hear them when I came off was amazing.
 
"I've been trying to make a good impression and I found out two or three days ago I was starting. I played well and now I have to keep that going.
 
"I'm very grateful that the manager gave me a chance. It's a dream come true to play for Celtic. It's the biggest club in Scotland so it's amazing.
 
"My goal was to play for the first team. I thought I was ready and I proved to the manager I was ready. He gave me a chance and hopefully I can do more.
 
"I play football because I want to be the best right-back and I'm going to prove that.
 
"You have to play with confidence if you want to be a footballer. If you want to be the best you have to play with confidence. Obviously don't be cocky but just go out there and play your game.
 
"You can't be nervous in front of these fans. They want you to show what you can do for the team and hopefully I can do that.
 
"I've been working hard in training and I play football to prove people wrong and show them what I've got. That's what I've been doing and I'm going to keep doing that."
