January 10 In an official interview with the club, Aibel, who became Leipzig’s sports director in December last year, talked about
When it came to Gwadiol, Nkunku and other related topics, he also talked about the first game in the second half of the Bundesliga with Bayern and the match against Manchester City in the 1/8 final of the Champions League.
The return of Gwadiol
During the few days of holiday after the World Cup, I got to know Gvardio better, he is a great guy, knows Leipzig very well and knows that he has chosen a club that has improved significantly.
He played very well during the World Cup and played well in the first half of the season.
Our position in the winter window is clear, Gvardio will remain at the club and we intend to see him continue to wear the Leipzig shirt next season.
We have been communicating with Nkunku about his treatment, and we have decided not to have surgery and take conservative treatment, which is correct.
Now we wish him continued recovery well and he will be back with us in February.
game against bayern
First of all, this is a Bundesliga game, and it will be a top game, the third team in the league against the league leaders.
Both clubs have contributed to German football in recent years and we want to take the three points, but we know how to evaluate this game.
No matter who wins in the end, the league title will not be determined.
Expectations for the first 6 months
We want to carry our pre-World Cup form into the second half of the season and if we do that we will be in the title race for as long as possible.
Our minimum target is to play in the Champions League next season, we are still in the German Cup and we are in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Of course Manchester City are a strong opponent but when you look at the quality of our team I don’t think we have no chance.
For me, the team has to build on what they’ve done in the last 13 or 14 games and then we’ll have a good series of games.
