Sport Bild wondered if the Frenchman was disappointed that Leipzig refused to sell him this summer: “No & I’ll explain why. It was the first time in my career my club had said to me that I’m too important to give up. That’s a feeling you can’t describe.”
The 24-year-old signed a contract extension in June, but the Red Bull club are off to another rough start. Nkunku understands he must step up if Leipzig want to reclaim their top four status:
"Great players are not only characterized by a good year. The best are constantly playing at this level. This is my next goal. Yes, I want to become a world footballer. That would be the biggest award you can win. It's a dream, but you should always strive for the highest."
