City loanee gaining from playing alongside McGoldrick

Bersant Celina says he is benefiting from playing alongside a ‘top’ player in David McGoldrick at Town.

The 21-year-old wide player admits he has been surprised to see how good Didz is after arriving at Portman Road on a season long loan from Manchester City.    

“I’ll be honest I didn’t know much about him before I arrived,” Bersant told the Club website.

“I obviously knew who he was but I wasn’t aware of the kind of technical player he is.

“But as soon as I got here I saw just how good he is. Some of the stuff he does out on the pitch can make opponents look stupid.

“I think he’s someone similar to me and I’m learning a lot from him because he really is a top player.

“Playing with him gives us all confidence and you can see that from the recent performances.”

Both players are currently away on World Cup qualiflying duty. Bersant is with Kosovo for their games against Ukraine and Iceland while Didz is with the Republic of Ireland for their crucial last two matches against Moldova on Friday and Wales on Monday.
