Outstanding 17 scorer points (8 goals, 9 assists) in 18 games! Christopher Nkunku (23) is in absolute gala form and makes himself interesting for Europe’s top clubs. But there is also a lot of hard work behind it!
Because in addition to the training and athletic units with the team, Nkunku still works for himself in additional shifts. Especially in the cognitive area to improve the brain and perception.

Like on the pitch. With up to 35.54 km / h Nkunku is the fastest and most accurate Leipzig this season.
Because light electrifies him …
