Celtic manager Neil Lennon doesn’t believe it will be easy to kick out Romanian side Cluj from the 2019-2020 UEFA Champions League.
Celtic is set to play against CFR Cluj tomorrow night, as part of the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League.
And for manager Neil Lennon, it will not be something easy, as he believes the Romanian side is still dangerous.
“I don’t really buy into Dan Petrescu’s [Cluj manager] comments that it would be a miracle,” Lennon told Four Four Two.
“I don’t know the budgets of both teams, but I do know it will be competitive.”
He explained: “All that will give us is a bit of impetus going into the weekend.”
“It will have no real relevance on Wednesday night, but psychologically it’s good for the players to have a win and a performance like that going into such an important game.”
“This is a totally different animal. This is Europe, away from home, against the Romanian champions. We are very motivated, obviously, but we are very wary and respectful of the opposition,” he said.
“We come here in good form, Cluj is in good form, so I think the tie is pretty even.”
