Dominik Szoboszlai gives fitness update after long injury lay-off

RB Leipzig midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai says he feels fit after recovering from a long-term injury.
Dominik Szoboszlai has provided an update on his fitness ahead of the 2021/22 season.

The Hungarian midfielder is back in full training after recovering from a persistent adductor injury that kept him out of the second half of the season, including the Euros.

On Saturday, he finally played his first game for RB Leipzig following his winter move from RB Salzburg as he came on in a 1-0 friendly win over AZ Alkmaar.

"I was very happy to finally be on the pitch in a game again, to wear the jersey, to see the fans. It was very nice. Of course there is still room for improvement, but that is normal after such a long time. For us, it was good to start with a win," Szoboszlai told Kicker and added:

"Maybe I'm a few percent off, but I actually feel fit. Because I was out for so long, we decided that in the first week of training I would not do the full program, but increase the intensity step by step. Now I'm in full training."
