Bangura can be better for Celtic than Larsson - Mattsson

Celtic new boy Mohamed Bangura can become a better player than Henrik Larsson according to his mentor.

Sierra Leone national team boss Lars-Olof Mattsson helped Bangura score a move from Swedish club AIK Stockholm to Parkhead and he feels he has all the makings of surpassing what Larsson achieved in Glasgow.

"Mohamed is a better player than Henrik was at 22," Mattsson said.

"I know both of them very well and they have the same playing style.

"They also have the same character and Mohamed can follow in Henrik's footsteps at Celtic.

"Mo can handle this move to Scotland and make the most of it.

"Henrik achieved everything with Celtic and then moved to Barcelona.

"I have told Mohamed to concentrate on Celtic for the next four years, but he can achieve so much in the game.

"He will play at a higher level than Scotland one day but right now all he is thinking about is Celtic."
