  • Jullien: Bhoys are still pushing each other during isolation training

    Jullien: Bhoys are still pushing each other during isolation training

    By: Tony Connelly on 27 Mar, 2020 13:31

  • THE Celtic squad may be in lockdown with rest of the country just now, but Christopher Jullien said the change in routine has not stopped the Bhoys from continuing to train hard and push each other to ensure they are ready to return when the time comes.

    The French defender has been following the expert advice and guidance and is currently at his home with his family.

    As is the case with the rest of the country, the impact of the coronavirus crisis had completely upended the daily routine for millions, and with football postponed, Jullien and the rest of the squad have found their strict daily training routine disrupted.

    “Right now we wake up and don’t know what to do,” said Jullien. “Normally I’d have my daily routine where I’d wake up, take a shower and head out to training. It’s a different life right now and it makes you realise what life is like without football.

    “I miss football and I miss the fans. When I arrived I knew the fans of this club were amazing. The welcome they gave me was amazing and it was really important for me to be close to them. Everything we achieved this year, they’re a part of that too.

    “Sitting in the house just now has given us the chance to reflect on the season," Jullien continued. "We were on a great run since returning in January. I’ve been thinking about everything we’ve done since the start of the year and I can’t wait to get back playing working towards more goals.”

    While Jullien is unable to meet up with the squad and train together on the training pitch each morning, the Frenchman said he has been working hard in his own gym at home. He also revealed Celtic’s head of fitness and conditioning, John Currie, has been making sure the players have personal programmes and guidance to help them stay in top shape.

    “I have some training equipment in my garage like a bike and a running machine,” he said. “I can’t do much and you want more. I miss the training pitch and I can’t wait to get back out on it.

    “John Currie, our head of fitness and conditioning, has been taking care of us. He’s given us programmes and he’ll text to see how things are going. He’s got a competition going between us all to see who is running the most and things like that, so that’s really good to keep us motivated.

    “It’s not the same when you’re not out on the field with the boys so we’re hoping to get back to that soon. We’re all keeping in touch with each other. I was just texting Odsonne and Olivier. We’re seeing how each other is doing and we’re all keeping our spirits up.”
