Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Clinton Larsen intends to maximise the extended mid-term break, as his team prepares for the resumption of the Premiership season next month.Celtic lost considerable momentum during the latter stages of 2014 and the team eventually dropped outside the top eight in the league standings. The poor run of form ultimately resulted in a change of the technical team, where Larsen took over at the helm from Ernst Middendorp.The Celtic mentor thinks that the timing of his re-appointment was also ideal."The break comes at the time when I have just re-joined the club and I am happy that I will be able to install my coaching methods," Larsen told SAPA on Wednesday.Larsen does not believe it is all doom and gloom at this juncture, though, despite the team not producing the best of starts to the season. The Celtic coach thinks that all the areas of concern can be adequately addressed during this pre-season period."We didn't fare badly in the first round even though there were games we should have easily won," added Larsen."The priority is to shape the boys in conditions that will be good enough to finish the season inside the top-eight brackets."It's good to be back. The previous coach left a good foundation and all I need to do is to change here and there before we hit the ground running. The players have been fantastic and with everybody pulling their weight, Celtic is back in the business of making their fans happy once again."
