Ghana's Jeremie Frimpong commends Celtic boss for extra work in training

Published on: 23 October 2019

Ghanaian right-back Jeremie Frimpong has lavished praises at Celtic manager Neil Lennon for his extra sessions with him after an impressive start to life at the club.

Frimpong, who joined the Hoops in the summer from Manchester City made his Scottish Premiership debut with an assist in Saturday’s 6-0 win over Ross County.

"Me and Neil, sometimes we work on my crosses because when I first came I would get there but my end product wouldn’t be that great," he said.

"So we’d stay behind and he’d give me some balls and I’d just whip them in so I think that’s a real improvement now."

"I’m going to keep working hard, keep making the fans proud, my team-mates proud and the manager proud,” said the Dutch teenager. "That’s all I want to do. The fans are great and they’re really great to me."
