RB Leipzig striker Patrik Schick says coming to Germany on loan from AS Roma has helped him to increase his confidence after a difficult 2018/19 season in the Italian capital.

"I feel very well," Schick said in an interview with Sport Bild and added:


"It was difficult for me in Rome. I didn't necessarily play in my favorite position in my first year there. The Leipzig style suits me very well. That increases my confidence, of course."

Asked if he wants to stay at RB Leipzig, who have the option to sign him on a permanent deal for €29 million, Schick responded:

"I can't and don't want to answer that. I don't know what will happen tomorrow. I'm not making any plans for the future right now."

RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann already wanted to sign Schick when he was coaching Hoffenheim and the striker was playing for Sparta Praha.

"He was one reason I wanted to come to Leipzig. It's true that he wanted me very much, and that he already wanted to bring me to Hoffenheim. I didn't speak to him in person until I came to Leipzig, so we didn't have contact back then. I only found out through my agency that he was interested," Schick said.

The 23-year-old has played nine games for RB Leipzig with four goals and two assists to his name.
