Celtic manager Ronny Deila explained at his press conference ahead of the game against St Johnstone the exciting aim he has for every single training session.
Deila is a big advocate of hard work every single day on the training field and he revealed exactly what he looks for from his staff and players on a daily basis.
“It shouldn’t be difficult to fire the players up, though. If it’s training today or tomorrow you should be 100%,” said the Norwegian.
“Every day you should go home from work feeling you got better.”
It’s a smart approach from the boss because it challenges his players to continuously improve.
He’s suggested that there is always something to work on and always something to strive for, which will make his staff and his players a more complete unit.
It’s a positive mentality, which doesn’t just apply to individuals going to Celtic to work for a day, it’s something which they can apply to their whole lives, with the club benefiting as a result.
It’s understandable to see where complacency could creep into Celtic’s game. They are the biggest and best club in Scotland, domestically dominant and always compete well in Europe.
Deila has to find ways to keep everyone motivated and striving towards something positive. Any players who don’t give 100% in front of the boss during a training session will find it difficult to get into the team, but genuine effort and a willingness to work hard should be rewarded.
