Liel Abada tells Israeli media about the ‘incredible’ atmosphere inside the Celtic dressing room
Celtic winger Liel Abada has added to the “incredible” atmosphere inside Parkhead’s dressing room after an incredible debut season.
The talented winger has racked up superb numbers at Parkhead despite only being away from his homeland for 12 months. Abada scored 15 goals and 11 assists as he battled his way to a league championship in his first year away from Israel.
Abada has become one of the important players for the Celtic side with Ange Postecoglou relying heavily on him during the campaign. He is now preparing for his first-ever crack in UEFA Champions League football following his £3.5million arrival last summer. [Scottish Sun].
And talk to UN in IsraelLiel was quick to speak about the situation inside the locker room with a positive light on things:
“I think it was a great season, both individually and as a team. There were a lot of ups and downs, better and worse periods. Overall, our important goal was to win the championship and I’m glad we did.
“We are a fairly new team who have signed a lot of players. I can tell you that we have an incredible locker room, with a good atmosphere. The public, the staff and the players allowed me to do my best.
Liel Abada talks about the positive vibes of the Celtic dressing room
The dressing room atmosphere has been absolutely essential to Celtic’s success this season. With so many different nationalities and players joining us this summer, a positive and caring environment was always going to be crucial.
You can’t just bring in about 10 different players from all over the world and expect them to settle down. You can’t just throw them away and think everything is going to be okay.
Abada has already spoken of his early Celtic struggles. He’s not the only one either. Settling and acclimating to life not just at Celtic, but in Scotland, is also a major step for players.
This likely shows the hard work and influence of Callum McGregor in his first year as captain. It was a baptism of fire for the Scottish international as he had to help integrate so many different personalities and nationalities into the dressing room. Still, the team harmony seems to be as good as it has been for a long time.
We haven’t really talked enough about this aspect of our season. Of course, the results and the trophies were inflated as one would expect. But getting a group of players from around the world and putting together a title-winning team in one season? It’s really ridiculous.
But that only sums up the work Ange Postecoglou has done at Celtic Park.
