Forsberg wants to stay in Leipzig: “Don’t see me anywhere else”



Forsberg wants to stay in Leipzig: "Don't see me anywhere else"

Playmaker Emil Forsberg wants to stay at RB Leipzig in the long term. “I still have three years of contract and I don’t see myself anywhere else,” said the 30-year-old on Thursday: “We want to win something big here.”

Forsberg has been playing in Leipzig since 2015 and is this season with the club in the DFB Cup final and in the semi-finals of the Europa League.

After winning the cup semi-final against Union Berlin last Wednesday, when Joker Forsberg headed the 2-1 winner in injury time, RB will play again in the league against K√∂penicker on Saturday (3.30 p.m. in LIVETICKER). This time too, the match plan could be “substituting Emil and then winning,” said Forsberg with a smile: “I’d like to play from the start, but the coach decides.”

In the Bundesliga, Leipzig is third in the Champions League with 54 points and has a three-point lead over fifth-placed SC Freiburg. Therefore, according to Forsberg, the final against Union has already been ticked off: “Saturday will be a new, important game. That’s our focus. We want to win again, play a good game and go towards the Champions League.”
