Julian Nagelsmann:
Ethan Ampadu has proved that we can use him

RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann won't rule out that Ethan Ampadu could feature again in Saturday's Bundesliga game against Schalke 04.

Ethan Ampadu proved himself in Wednesday's 1-0 win over Tottenham in the Champions League, says RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann.

Ampadu was given a rare start as he replaced the suspended Dayot Upamecano, and speaking ahead of Saturday's Bundesliga clash with Schalke 04, Nagelsmann praised the Chelsea loanee for his performance.

"Against Spurs, Ethan Ampadu proved that we can use him. Whether he plays against Schalke depends on the situation of other players. There's no reason for Upamecano not to play. However, it might be the case that Ethan plays tomorrow," Nagelsmann said, as quoted by the club.

The 19-year-old has been limited to just seven appearances for RB Leipzig since he made the switch to Red Bull Arena from Chelsea on a season-long loan deal last summer.
