Miku has had to settle for a peripheral role at Celtic Park since his arrival in the summer on a year-long deal from Getafe.
The 27-year-old has been told by Celtic manager Neil Lennon he will get his chance once he becomes more accustomed to the physical aspect of the Scottish game.
"It's a season long loan and I am happy that we are in the Champions League and we can win a title," Miku said.
"However, on a personal level, I was expecting this to be a big year for me and to take a leap in my career to a new level.
"The manager has spoken to me and told me that technically, I'm the best player we have, but physically I'm not ready to compete in Scottish football and I have to be patient.
"I was happy with that assessment as it gives me encouragement. I know I have to stay calm because there is still a long time left on my deal."
