RB Leipzig coach Domenico Tedesco sees little need for improvement in the squad despite the mixed first half of the season for the winter break. “I think we don’t have to do that much, we have to get the players fit on the pitch,” the 36-year-old told kicker: “We have a squad with good individual players, we also have a good balance between old and young , between defensive and offensive players. “
The coach, who has been in office since December 9, explains that he is “basically a friend of squads that are not too big and that have good squad hygiene:” I want there to be healthy competition and also the last and youngest player Training performance that the starting eleven can smell. ” To this end, he sees enough suitable leadership players in the current squad, who should, however, “coach more and louder”.
With tenth place and just 22 points, the Saxons have so far lagged behind their own claims. “We still have a lot of work ahead of us,” said Tedesco: “I didn’t assume that it would be easy. Why? Because we have a good team, but the table is what it is, and that’s always there a bit of truth in there. ” Nevertheless, “not everything is negative”.
