Ange Postecoglou urges Celtic to ‘take the game’ to Bayer Leverkusen

Europa League

Ange Postecoglou Celtic

Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou has urged his team to take the game to Bayer Leverkusen in their Europa League meeting on Thursday. Celtic revived their hopes of qualifying for the knockouts after two consecutive victories against Ferencvaros. Leverkusen is unbeaten in the competition so far but Postecoglou made his intentions clear even though it might prove to be to their detriment.

“We’ll only learn from the game if we play our football. You’ll learn absolutely nothing if you go out there and shy away from it,” Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou said. “We can go and be conservative, try and hold on, try and survive, but if we do that we’ll learn nothing. All you learn is that you’re inferior and you don’t believe you can be any better.”

“The only way we’ll learn anything in this game is if we go out there and take the game to them. That may be a painful lesson for us all but ultimately it’s a better way for us to find out,” he added. “It may not be a painful lesson, it may show that we’re making a hell of a lot of progress. I’d rather go there and find out about ourselves than just go there and try to survive.”
