Sweden boss Hamren backs Celtic's Majstorovic to continue on

Sweden national team boss Erik Hamren is convinced Daniel Majstorovic has a few more years left in him.

The 34-year old Celtic centre-half is back in form after a run of poor performances for the Hoops and although he is creeping up in years, Hamren is confident he can continue to play consistently for both club and country.

Hamren was also confident that Majstorovic, who has been capped 48 times by Sweden, can be a key contributor at next summer's European Championships in Poland and Ukraine and can kick on after that tournament.

Not at all," he told Record Sport if Euro2012 will be his international finale.

"Age is a number and nothing more if you keep yourself in good shape, and you only have to look at Daniel to see he is a fit man.

"If he is fit enough, it comes down to motivation and a desire to keep performing at the highest level.

"Majstorovic has that hunger to keep proving he can play at the highest level and is good enough to keep playing at a top club for the next three or four years.

"I'm not surprised to hear Celtic are considering a new contract for him. They will know what he can bring to the club on and off the field.

"I trust him enough to play him in the national team and although I haven't seen many Celtic games this season, I know Majstorovic has played almost every one, so he must have the trust of his coach.

"He is a very good player with a strong mentality and his physical presence is important.

"I like players who shine on the pitch, who catch my eye, and he does that."
