By Rune Gjerulff

RB Leipzig coach Jesse Marsch is certain André Silva will start scoring goals again.

André Silva has had a disappointing start to life at RB Leipzig, finding the net just once in seven games following his summer move from Eintracht Frankfurt.


But despite Silva's struggles so far, RB Leipzig coach Jesse Marsch is confident the Portuguese forward will start scoring again.

"André is a super guy. He's so professional," said Marsch ahead of today's clash with Hertha BSC.

"Things aren't going perfectly for him, but when he finds the net again, lots of goals will come. We believe in him and his quality."

Silva scored 28 goals in 32 games for Eintracht Frankfurt last season.
