Celtic starlet Jeremie Frimpong has disclosed how advice given to him by his Hoops team-mates has helped him become the player he currently is.
Frimpong was one of the Hoops’ stand-out performers last season, and had become a first-team regular whilst still a teenager before the season was brought to a halt.
Now, ahead of the new season, Frimpong has detailed how advice from his more experienced team-mates has helped him improve his game.
“‘What’s the league like? What’s the first team like? Any advice you can give me? What should I do on the pitch? How can I help the team? I ask everything” Frimpong said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
“We will help you”
“‘They just tell me: “Don’t pressure yourself. We will help you out as much as possible. Just go and play your game and you have nothing to worry about”.”
Frimpong has certainly taken the advice given to him by his team-mates to heart in his brief Celtic career. He has been fearless, and his performances were one of the highlights of last season.
It will be up to the player to maintain these standards in the season ahead. Frimpong will be under a different type of pressure as the Hoops aim to win a 10th league title in a row.
However, Frimpong should back himself to handle any type of pressure that he comes under this season. After all, so far he has already overcome the trauma of being sent-off in a cup final against Rangers.
Should not be afraid to play regular game
That didn’t stop him from playing his regular type of game, and nothing should this season either.
There is also the fact that if Frimpong is struggling, he could once more talk to his team-mates who welcomed him into the side in the first-place.
Scott Brown, for example, is the ideal player who could provide a pep talk if necessary to Frimpong. Hopefully that will not have to happen, but it is good to see that Frimpong has taken the advice given to him so far, and it has helped him become one of Celtic’s best players.
