Hoops midfielder reveals frustration

Ki Sung-Yueng could move on.

By | 4th September 2010

According to the Daily Record, Celtic midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng has used Twitter as the medium to criticize manager Neil Lennon for the way he has treated the Korean ever since his arrival in Glasgow nine months ago.

The 21-year old Ki, who excelled for South Korea in this summer’s World Cup, was expected to be a part of Lennon’s summer plans as he aimed to develop the new-look Bhoys into legitimate title contenders.

However, Ki has not only accused Lennon of a failure to work closely with him, but has also lashed out at his manager for continuously focusing on the weaknesses of his game rather than acknowledging his strengths.

“The relationship with Neil Lennon isn’t that good since last season. He always says I’m not good at defence. The manager does not want to see my strengths as he always stresses my weaknesses,” he stated.

The player also went as far as conceding that he will certainly leave the club if his future as a first-team player lacks promise.

He elaborated: “It feels like I’ll not be in the first team forever. I don’t need to stay at Celtic as long as I can’t get a first-team place.”

    pmsl usual paranoid from the unwashed lol no matter whats said about celtic they dont believe it and blame every one else FAIL FAIL

  3. celticno1 says:

    u want to know why that is its because lennon doesn't want weakness in his team, if lennon (an inexperiance manager) can figure out the players weakness, a more experiance manager will easily use that weakness to the teams advantage

    i agree IF this is a true article

    Lennon rates Ki. Know this for a fact. No chance the way this has been reported is the case.

    he won Young Asian player of the Year Kev so u know as much about his ability as Neil Lennon, F*ck all. At world Cup the pundits on bbc & itv praised Ki after Koreas opening 2 games & where saying he's a contender for Young Player of the tournament. He's never had a chance so the sarky comment "big loss" is both ignorant & stupid.

  7. Kev says:

    Big loss…. let him go home!
