Julian Nagelsmann on Dominik Szoboszlai: “He’s a very nice young man & makes a good impression.”

Speaking in his pre-match presser, RB Leipzig head coach Julian Nagelsmann discussed the signing of 20-year-old Hungary international Dominik Szoboszlai from RB Salzburg.

“We spoke shortly after his arrival,” said Nagelsmann. “Dominik is a very nice young man and makes a good impression, especially in terms of his physicality.

“He can play at different positions in attacking midfield. The intense nature of his position requires a lot from players, which is why he will definitely help us in that area.

“He’s got an exceptional right foot and has a knack for set pieces as well. He’s definitely a candidate to set up plenty of goals and to score several himself as well. I’m convinced that his self-confidence will be high when he joins us and that he will be of great help to the team.”

RB Leipzig paid a reported €20 million plus bonuses for Szoboszlai, who’s signed a contract with the Bundesliga side until 2025.
