Jesse Marsch: “Christopher Nkunku doesn’t have any weaknesses.”

Speaking ahead of RB Leipzig’s Champions League clash against Club Brugge, head coach Jesse Marsch praised the performances of 23-year-old Frenchman Christopher Nkunku.

“We have spoken to Christopher a lot about playing on the counter and also what he needs to do to play as a striker, a No. 10 and on both wings,” said Marsch.

“Christopher has no weaknesses. He’s young and still want a lot more. It’s always a good thing when a young player listens to the things we say and also wants to implement them. Working with him is a lot of fun as he’s really intelligent and has a lot of potential.”

Nkunku scored a hat-trick against Manchester City and has scored six goals in all competitions for RB Leipzig this season, creating three in eight games.
