Kristoffer Ajer: This is how I cut out Celtic mistakes
Celtic centre-back Kristoffer Ajer has revealed his method for cutting out mistakes when he plays for the Hoops.
The 20-year-old Norwegian has disclosed that he watches a replay of the most recent game he has played in, and looks for any improvements that an be made in his performance.
Ajer disclosed that he did that after the recent 3-2 victory over Partick Thistle, a match which saw the Hoops concede two poor goals.
“I went home on Saturday and watched the full Thistle game again. I do that for every game. That’s how I work,” he said, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“I look at the details, I look at the goals. I look at when I’m with the ball to find easier solutions next time. That doesn’t change from game to game.
“I will sit until the evening now but when you play games I think that’s a big part of the game. You must watch it and learn from your mistakes and what you did well too.”
Ajer has been a huge success story for the Hoops since replacing Jozo Simunovic in the heart of the Hoops defence in December following the 4-0 loss to Hearts.
He formed a solid partnership with Dedryck Boyata, which has only been broken up because of the injury suffered by the Belgian in the recent match against Kilmarnock, a match which also saw Ajer suffer an injury which he has now recovered from.
Ajer now looks set to be partnered with recent signing from Dundee Jack Hendry in the upcoming Europa League clash with Zenit.
The match is arguably the most high profile of Ajer’s career so far, and it will be intriguing to see how he fares against Roberto Mancini’s side, who are currently in second place in the Russian league.
