‘Born Winner’ – Kris Ajer praises Neil Lennon

KRIS AJER has praised Neil Lennon for his impact and work in improving his game. The Norwegian defender believes that Lennon and his backroom staff have made it easy for him and his teammates to perform as well as they have.

Speaking to Celtic TV, Ajer spoke highly about the manager’s mentality as well as how he uses his own experiences as a player to spur on this current group of players to new success. Ajer also praised the work that goes on behind the scenes at Celtic. Sometimes we forget about the effort and preparation involved and Ajer attributes this planning to Celtic’s success in recent years.

“It’s been great working with the gaffer.

“He’s a born winner and that’s what you have to have at a club like Celtic. So to work with him and learn to enjoy the expectations of winning and playing for Celtic has been great.

“The defending part, he’s taught me a lot, and the rest of the backroom staff help every single day. So it’s a fantastic club and culture to be a part of it.

“The backroom staff put in so much work between all these games we play so that before we go into every single game, there’s never any doubt in our minds as to what we will be doing. We know our tactics and we go through that the day before the game and also a few days before when we analyse our last game but also look forward so we don’t come into a game not fully prepared.

“They make it so easy for us to be spot-on with our tactics and what we’re supposed to for every game.”

Ajer has been the centre of reported transfer speculation with several English teams amongst Leicester City interested in signing him. However, with two years remaining on his contract, it would be expected that Celtic would only sell Ajer if they received an offer they couldn’t refuse or they wanted to sell the 21-year-old.

Despite this speculation, Ajer has been impressive on the park this season with Christopher Jullien at the heart of the Celtic defence.
