CHRISTOPHER JULLIEN says that he is not concerned about the future of coach Neil Lennon and that he is backing Celtic to get back to the success levels of last season.
Last night, the defender made his return from injury but could do little to improve the disturbing frequency at which Celtic conceded goals to Sparta Prague in their 4-1 defeat.
However, amid the strain Celtic are currently under, Jullien was optimistic about the potential prospects of his manager and his staff.
Jullien said, “I’m not worried about the manager,”
It was a bad game, but we still believe in the coaching staff and each other. I believe in him – 100%.
“He’s an amazing coach. Since I arrived at the club, he has done an amazing job. Before, the coach did a fine job – and he’s going to do it again.
“I know the results were not so good on the pitch, but we have to look after each other.
“The manager is doing a great job, we just need to sort out those mistakes and work for each other.
“I hope we will get back to the way we were if we do that. It was certainly a rough night and it’s the end of the Europa League.
But some big games are still ahead of us, and there’s still a lot to do. The coach has the players’ 100 percent support.
As his boss, Jullien was as perplexed as to why Celtic was struggling at the time.
“We have the same players as last year and we definitely have the same staff, they are still doing a great job since the beginning of the season,” he said.
When you look at the case, we may have had a slump or something emotionally, but it’s just something you’ve got to focus on.
“To get back to what we did last year, we just have to trust and believe in ourselves. That’s when we were amazing.
“We wanted to win every game, we still want to, but there’s just something missing.”
