Christopher Jullien praises impact of Celtic manager Neil Lennon

Celtic’s key defender Christopher Jullien has explained that manager Neil Lennon has had a massive impact on him.

Lennon, 48, is currently in charge of his second spell as Bhoys manager and he’s been a huge success since taking charge from Brendan Rodgers in February 2019.

He helped them get over the line for a third successive domestic treble last season and they could still match that feat once again this campaign.

The Scottish giants are also competing in a Europa League Round of 32 tie with Copenhagen, with the teams locked at 1-1 from the first leg and Celtic have an away goal going into the second match on Thursday night at Parkhaed.

Jullien was a big money signing for £7million (BBC) in the summer and he’s become a colossus in defence.

The French centre-back has already played 42 games across all competitions and he’s been discussing the role of Lennon.

“I’m impressed with everything with the gaffer. Not just as a manager but also a person. He’s helped my confidence and he’s perfect for the club and for me,” Jullien said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

TBR’s View:

Jullien has been an excellent addition at Celtic in their backline, while going forward he’s remarkably netted seven goals too across all competitions.

The 26-year-old is a real leader at the back that is one of Lennon’s most used players and he’s so important to their European campaign.

Lennon’s return did initially receive some doubt from some supporters, but they are fully behind him now and he’s got them playing an exciting attacking brand of football that is continuing the club’s domestic dominance.
