Celtic: Mark Guidi drops worrying Christopher Jullien injury update

Mark Guidi has dropped a worrying injury update concerning Celtic centre-back Christopher Jullien.

What’s the latest?

In recent comments made to Go Radio (via Vital Celtic), the journalist revealed that, despite the Frenchman appearing to have recovered from a knee injury that had kept him out of action for over a year earlier this season, there is still no update on when the defender could make a return to first-team football.

When asked if there was an update on the 28-year-old’s current condition, Guidi said: “To be honest, on Jullien? Not at the moment.”

Do you think Jullien will ever get back to his best?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Supporters will be gutted

Considering just how important a part of the Celtic side Jullien was prior to his injury, the news that there is still no update on the condition of the centre-back is sure to have left Hoops supporters gutted.

Indeed, over his nine Premiership appearances in the Bhoys’ 2020/21 campaign, the £4.95m-rated Frenchman was in imperious form in the heart of the Celtic defence, helping his side keep five clean sheets, scoring one goal and providing one assist, as well as making an average of 1.2 interceptions, 1.2 tackles, 3.6 clearances and winning 6.9 duels per game.

These returns saw the £20k-per-week colossus average a quite extraordinary SofaScore match rating of 7.43, ranking him as the Hoops’ second-best performer in the top flight of Scottish football that season.

As such, is it clear for all to see that the return of Jullien would provide Ange Postecoglou’s side with a major boost, however, with it now being 15 months since the 27-year-old started a league game for the Bhoys, the Parkhead faithful will certainly be concerned that the Frenchman may never be able to refind the form he was demonstrating prior to his injury back in December 2020.
