  • Christopher Jullien: We’ll give everything before winter break

    Christopher Jullien: We’ll give everything before winter break

    By: Joe Donnelly on 20 Dec, 2019 14:14

  • AHEAD of tomorrow’s encounter with Aberdeen at Paradise, Christopher Jullien expressed a personal and collective desire to take maximum points from this year’s remaining games.

    Doing so could see the Hoops enter 2020 with an eight-point margin, and the 26-year-old defender sees no reason why this can’t be the case.  

    “It’s the goal to win every game from now until the end of the year,” said Jullien. “We know that every game is tough. We’ve got to give everything we’ve got before now and the break. Five points is a good lead, which means the other teams have to win to stay with us. On the other hand, we still have games to win to keep that gap.

    “We have to do our work first, think about our own game, and we will see what happens there. From that, we’re in a good position. Since the beginning of the season, my team-mates make me comfortable in every situation. We speak to each other a lot during games, and I think it’s good for us to play in every system. In games, you sometimes have to change mid-game, and I think that’s good for the team.”

    Jullien then heaped praise on his defensive counterpart, Kris Ajer, complimenting his prowess on the pitch and leadership skills on and off it. In turn, the centre-back feels he’s learning with every passing game, and welcomes regular new challenges during a busy December schedule.

    He added: “Kris has a bright future and a good present. He’s a young player and everyone here knows his quality. He has good leadership skills, and he’s going to just keep going. I’m really happy to be working with him.

    “Every day is a new challenge, and every game is a new challenge. Every game I can learn, and that’s what I want to do.

    “As for Aberdeen, we played very well in that game, and I hope it’s going to be the same tomorrow. Since the beginning of the season, we’ve had the mentality to create chances in every game.

    “This is the first time I’ve played in December in Scotland, but it’s really good to be busy. the momentum we have at the moment is unbelievable and we need to do everything we can to keep that going.”
