Man City loanee benefiting from his time at Portman Road

Bersant Celina has paid tribute to manager Mick McCarthy and his team-mates and says he’s in a good place to learn the game.

The 21-year-old Kosovo international, who is on  a season long loan from Manchester City, bagged his seventh goal of the season in the 4-2 win over Nottingham Forest last weekend and has become a favourite with the Blue Army.

“I am learning so much from the manager here,” Bersant told iFollow Ipswich.

“The philosophy is different from City and that is what I need right now. I have to do the defending side as well as look to do things going forward.  I’m in a really good place to learn.

“There are a lot of very talented players here, like Didzy [David McGoldrick and Waggy [Martyn Waghorn] and I can learn from them. Nearly all the players are older than me and I look up to them. I learn from them. 

“Waggy has shown how talented he is with the goals he scores. If I can watch him and add what he does to my game, then great. It’s going to make me a better player.”
