It is known that Australian coach Postecoglu strongly wants Cho Kyu-sung. 
He is famous for being good at Asian football and respecting Asian players because he directed Japanese professional football Yokohama Marinos from 2018 to last summer. After he joined Celtic, he actively recruited and used Japanese players.

Currently, only five Japanese players are playing for Celtic: Kyogo Furuhashi, Yuki Kobayashi, Yosuke Ideguchi, Daizen Maeda, and Leo Hatate.
