Burke aiming high for Leipzig

Oliver Burke admits he is still adjusting to life in Germany since his surprise summer move to the Bundesliga, but is already targeting the title with his new club.

The Scotland international raised eyebrows across British football in August when he signed for newly promoted RB Leipzig in a £13m deal from Nottingham Forest having played just 35 senior games.

“It’s an amazing feeling to be second in the Bundesliga at the moment and still doing so well and comfortably winning matches as well as a team. We are doing very well and it is great,” he told Sky Sports News HQ.

“I want to win the Bundesliga and I want to win it with RB Leipzig. Why not? We have the players, the quality; we have a great team so there is no reason why we can’t.

“For sure, it is a good shout to be in the Champions League but we take every game as it comes and we keep working hard and certainly we will get there with our hard work and dedication.”
