Mikael Lustig’s Wife Says She ‘Cried For a Week’ After Learning Her Husband’s Celtic Spell Was Over

Mikael Lustig’s Wife Says She ‘Cried For a Week’ After Learning Her Husband’s Celtic Spell Was Over

Mikael Lustig‘s ‘exhausted’ wife Josefin has revealed she ‘cried for a week’ after learning her husband’s Celtic career had come to an end.

Swedish right-back Lustig revealed via his Instagram feed last night that his seven-and-a-half year stay in Glasgow had finished, with the 32-year-old veteran being hailed as ‘phenomenal’ by Hoops boss Neil Lennon earlier today.

As you’d probably expect, supporters of the club are often concerned with footballing concerns first and foremost, but the fallout of Lustig’s exit seems to have taken its toll on his family, particularly Josefin.

In her latest personal blog, Josefin explained: “Its been a tough time lately. We are moving and I wasn’t prepared for it.

“Its been a lot harder than I thought it would be. Things can move quickly in this life.

“But we have been in Glasgow for 7.5 years so its been tough to get used to the thought of us leaving.

“Didn’t get that much time to get used to it and prepare either. I cried every day for a week after Mikael told me.

“I’m exhausted. Its really taken a lot of energy.”

It remains to be seen where Josefin and Mikael will be moving to, but the Sun have linked the veteran defender with a move to Belgian side KAA Gent.

But do you think Celtic will regret letting a player of Lustig’s experience and influence leave this summer, or is it best for both parties to move on to new pastures?
