Celtic winger Joao Jota has stated that the squad must believe in themselves and the football they are looking to play ahead of the big fixtures coming up.
As quoted by the Glasgow Times, the 22-year old impressed many fans with his performances against Betis. Despite not getting the result we would have liked in Spain on Thursday, Jota is confident that with belief, the squad will produce consistent results.
If we don’t believe in ourselves, nobody else is going to believe,” Jota said. “I think we have to stick with our process and just do our thing, believe in the ideas of our coach and our club and stay true to ourselves.
“Unfortunately, we didn’t get the result we wanted [against Real Betis], but I think the attitude is there. We just have to keep on doing our things, keep on track and just believing in the process.
“I think the next games will be better. It’s not the result we wanted but let’s look to the other ones.
“We are working on every front,” he said. “Defensively, offensively…we have to be strong in every single area. It’s not only defensively.
“We do the work every single day and every single game, so I just think we need more games, more time, and things will be fluid for sure.”
Going into Thursday’s game, it very much felt like a free hit with the number of injury issues the squad had.
However, fans came away slightly disappointed with losing the game due to the performance in the early parts and the manner in which we lost the goals.
For the next month, we have some crucial league fixtures ahead, starting with Sunday’s trip to Livingston.
Hopefully, we can produce a good result for the first time on the road to the Tony Macaroni Arena since they were promoted back to the Premiership.
