Artur Boruc: Celtic made me lazy

Former Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc believes his easy life at Celtic made him lazy.

After five season at Parkhead, Boruc signed for Fiorentina in the summer transfer window, and has admitted that he was in need of a change.


"In Glasgow, I became a bit lazy because they all loved me no matter how I played," he said in an interview with a Polish television channel. "I loved Glasgow, however, at some point in life you must change.

"I know that at Fiorentina I have to work hard because, compared to Celtic I have to earn my space. Now is a different situation that involves more work for me.

"I came to Fiorentina because I wanted to go to play in a better championship. I love Italy, I feel good here and I have also begun to speak Italian.

"Now in Fiorentina I must make everyone understand my worth. I'm very ambitious and optimistic."

The 30-year-old has yet to make a league appearance for La Viola, and has found himself behind Sebastien Frey in the pecking order.
