WITH four goals in eight appearances to his name this season, Odsonne Edouard has given the Paradise faithful much to cheer about. The Frenchman’s signature song, as bestowed by the Hoops support, is a personalised slant on The Stone Roses’ 1991 hit single I Wanna Be Adored, and it appears Edouard himself is a fan.
Speaking this week the 21-year-old forward said: “I hear the Celtic supporters singing the Stone Roses song with my name in place. I like it, and it drives me on when I’m on the pitch. It’s normally when I’ve played well, I’ve scored a goal or I’ve been close to scoring.”
Edouard admitted that while Manchester rock bands aren’t normally his cup of tea, he thoroughly enjoys hearing his song ring out from the stands.
He added: “The Stone Roses aren’t really my style of music, I’m more into rap music, so it’s not normally the kind of song I’d listen to in my own time. But I love listening to it during the game! Hearing the Celtic fans singing it makes me want to play well and work harder for them. That makes me smile.”
