Football: “I want to be a top level player”, Openda is having fun with Leipzig

A successful move. And a transfer that pleases the main interested party. “Leipzig is the perfect team for me to progress,” said Belgian striker Loïs Openda (23) in an interview with a group of media including AFP, before hosting Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday, leader of the German championship, during the 18th day.

“I always wanted to make a good transfer. RB Leipzig is the perfect team for me to progress. In the way they play, it allows me to have a good connection with myself as a player,” explained Loïs Openda.

Revealed last season in the French championship with Lens (21 goals in Ligue 1), Openda has integrated perfectly into the Leipzig squad, with already eleven goals in the Bundesliga, which allows him to occupy 3rd place in the ranking of scorers behind the inaccessible Harry Kane (22) and Serhou Guirassy (17).

“It’s a great club for player development. I have always said that I want to be a top player, and the transfer to Leipzig can help me do that. The coach knows how to put the players in the best conditions to express their qualities,” explained the Belgian international (14 caps, 2 goals).

With 33 points at mid-season, RB Leipzig lost contact with the duo at the top of the Bundesliga, Bayer Leverkusen (45) and Bayern Munich (41, and a game in hand), before receiving the leader Saturday (6:30 p.m.). Fourth in the Bundesliga, the club from eastern Germany is battling with Stuttgart (3rd, 34th) and Borussia Dortmund (5th, 30th). “The objective remains to qualify for the next Champions League,” underlines Loïs Openda, who will challenge Real Madrid in the round of 16 of the C1.
