Yussuf Poulsen feels fully fit again: "My body has stabilized"

After an injury-plagued spell, RB Leipzig forward Yussuf Poulsen finally feels back to his best.
Having worked his way back to full fitness, Yussuf Poulsen made his first start for RB Leipzig since October in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Danish international played 60 minutes and was satisfied with his and Leipzig's performance.

"It was a top first half. Defensively it was one of our best games in the first 45 minutes. But we could have done a few things better with the ball, myself included," Poulsen told RBlive and added that he finally feels back at full strength after a rough period.

"I had problems with my body, had a lot of muscle injuries, had to work out new routines to get to where my body felt good.

"Now my body has stabilized, I'm fit and just happy that I can play good football again," said Poulsen.

The Danish international is keen to do all he can to prove that he deserves another chance in the starting line-up – and to be offered a contract extension beyond 2024.

"Everyone has to prove themselves every day and every week at RB to be allowed to continue playing here. That's nothing new. I do that too, but no differently than usual," he emphasized.
