Young Bersant Celina, Manchester City U18 team, created headlines earlier this year when he was part of Kosovo’s U20 National Football team that played in the Swiss Valais Cup. He may be the next up-and-coming player to watch, after Adnan Januzaj, a fellow member of the Albanian Diaspora of Kosovo origin, made a brakethrough in the English Premier league with Manchester United.
This weekend, 17-year-old Bersant Celina, a citizen of Norway, scored twice for Manchester City’s U18 team when they hosted Bolton Wanderers. Celina was not on the first XI at first, but came in as a substitute in 70th minute. It took him 5 minutes to score City’s third goal, and another 15 minutes until he ended the game with another strike. City won 4-1,and the English team added its fourth win in a row.
Young Celina created headlines earlier this year when he was part of Kosovo’s U20 team that played in the Swiss Valais Cup. Kosovo finished last. Even though it did not go that well for the young Kosovo team, these young boys wrote history since it was the first time it participated in an official tournament as a National Team.Midfielder Bersant Celina might be a part of Norway’s U-team too. But since he’s already showed us that he’s interested to play for Kosovo, maybe he is a potential national team player for the future.
