Jeremie Frimpong putting extra effort into crossing training
Celtic teenage sensation Jeremie Frimpong has revealed that he has been spending extra time with manager Neil Lennon – working on his crossing.
The former Manchester City youngster may only have played two competitive matches since joining Celtic this summer but he’s already made a lasting impression with the support. In fact, his performance, especially in the second-half, during Saturday’s thumping of Ross County has led many to believe he should be shunted up the Parkhead pecking order.
Frimpong has remained humble, however, and admitted that there’s one part of his game that manager Neil Lennon has been able to help him with.
🗣️ JF on Neil Lennon: "Working with the manager has been great. I've stayed behind with him to work on my crosses. It's improved a lot since I've joined and helped me with the assist at the weekend."

It’s refreshing to see Frimpong improving his crossing
Frimpong’s crossing has certainly not looked too bad so far although it is encouraging to hear him openly discussing a part of his game that he wants to improve. The Dutch defender possesses such immense speed that he’s always likely to hit the byline and have the chance to deliver.
What separates a good full-back from a top one is their ability to deliver on the money, time after time. Kieran Tierney and compatriot Andy Robertson are both known for their terrific end product, more so than their lung-busting runs.
If Frimpong can continue to improve different aspects of his game, and earn some playing time in the process, then the future could be very bright for him in Glasgow.
