Celtic set to land Drogba-like 'beast' Balde says Badajoz boss Munoz

CD Badajoz manager Adolfo Munoz says Celtic's imminent addition of Amido Balde is a good piece of business by the Scottish champions.

The Hoops are set to complete the signing of the 22-year old striker from Portuguese club VitoriaGuimaraes and his former boss, whilst on loan in Spain, is confident he will make a big impression in Glasgow.

"Celtic has made a very shrewd move," Muno, who compared Balde to former Chelsea star Didier Drogba, ttold SunSport.

"Amido is going to be the talk of the town as soon he starts playing for Celtic.

"There isn't a defender in the world who can stop this boy - unless you're a sumo wrestler.

"It is very difficult for a defender to handle him in a one-to-one situation.

"The defenders will not be able to match up against him when he's running towards goal.

"He is a beast. His physique is incredible.

"I'm not exaggerating. Trying to push him away, jump higher or anticipate him is very difficult for a defender. He has the physique and energy of Drogba. You have to play dirty to stop him, so Celtic will get a lot of fouls in their favour near the penalty area."
