Israeli forward Liel Abada, who has been impressing for Scottish giants Celtic, has admitted that he dreams of representing Liverpool in the future.
Speaking to Israeli website Sport5.co.il, as relayed by Tribal Football, Celtic attacker Liel Abada has revealed that he harbours hopes of playing in the Premier League in his career, with Liverpool being his favoured destination.
Abada came through the ranks at Israeli club Maccabi Petah Tikva and went on to make 76 first-team appearances for the club, scoring 20 goals and setting up 10 more, which was enough to attract the attention of Celtic. The Hoops signed the 20-year-old forward, who can play anywhere across the frontline, in the summer earlier this year.
Since moving to Parkhead, Abada has made a solid impression, bagging an impressive tally of six goals and four assists from just 15 games across all competitions.
A two-time capped Israeli international, the 20-year old forward has now opened up on his career ambitions during an interview, revealing that the Premier League, in particular, Liverpool is where he wants to ply his trade in the future.

“My dream was and remains to play in England, in one of the teams in the Premier League,” he told sport5.co.il. The biggest dream is Liverpool, but I have to keep working hard here to prove myself.”
On the prospect of potentially challenging Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah, who plays on the right-wing, a position that Abada prefers, the youngster joked, saying: “Should Mo Salah worry? From me? No! He is a super player.”
Abada, during the interview, also spoke up about how special it was to play for a club like Celtic and shed some light on the atmosphere at Parkhead during matches. “Anyone who hasn’t been to Celtic Park does not understand what an atmosphere is. You do not understand what a shiver it gives. My song too, and when they shout You’ll Never Walk Alone. It’s hard for me to even explain in words,” he said.
Liverpool have been in the market for a new forward, with links to the likes of Karim Adeyemi doing the rounds quite a fair bit. While Abada dreams of playing at Anfield, it remains to be seen if his exploits with Celtic are enough to catch the attention of the Merseyside giants.
