Stefan Johansen's confident claim after winning Player of the Month award

The Celtic star was delighted to win the award and feels in the shape of his life.

Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen was delighted after winning the SPFL Player of the Month award for February, according to STV.

Celtic signed Johansen for £2 million and the 24-year-old hasn't looked back since, producing a number of high-octane performances for Ronny Deila's side, as well as scoring goals for the Scottish champions.

And, after winning the Player of the Month award for February, Johansen has made a confident claim.

Indeed, the Celtic star says he can play three games a week and it doesn't affect him or make him feel at all tired.

"I feel great," the Norwegian said. "I can play three games in a week and it doesn't affect me, I don’t feel tired. My form is good now and I just need to keep on doing what I’m doing.

"You need to be professional and do your recoveries. The games are coming very quickly so you need to eat the right things, sleep good, train well and be ready for games."

What many professional footballers would give to be able to make a claim like that?

Fatigue, however, does appear to have set in ever so slightly at Celtic recently, with their stellar run of recent results slowing down somewhat of late. Who could blame Deila's side? They've played a huge number of games over the last few weeks.

As for Johansen, though, there is no denying he deserves his Player of the Month award, with the 24-year-old seen by many Celtic fans as a strong candidate to be the club's player of the season.
