"Union were very effective"

Head coach Julian Nagelsmann, Emil Forsberg and Lukas Klostermann react to the season finale against Union Berlin

Julian Nagelsmann:

  • "We are a very ambitious team and wanted to pick up a win today and record the highest points total in club history. We had a lot of chances in the game and didn’t manage to turn any of them into goals – that’s been a bit of a recurring theme this season. We make life difficult for ourselves by simply not taking our chances. We should have won the game, but Union were very effective and have written a nice chapter in their club history today.
    Congratulations to Union; they’ve had a very good season and will now deservedly be in the Conference League. I would have liked to sign out with three points. For me, the RB Leipzig chapter, a very nice chapter, has come to an end."


Emil Forsberg:

  • "We had our chances to win today but we didn't score the goals. We played against a very good side who also deserved their win. Congratulations to Union. We really wanted to record the best season in club history, but we lacked the spark in the decisive moments and were not good enough. Of course, we’re disappointed.
    We have had a lot of great moments with head coach Julian Nagelsmann and developed as a team. We will take that into the new season and want to attack it from the beginning again."

 Lukas Klostermann:

  • "Obviously, the game didn't go the way we had imagined, with a different result. In my opinion, it wasn't a game we had to lose today.
    At the end of the day, Union were more clinical and therefore won. There were some good aspects to our game, we improved significantly after half time and had some good chances. Luthe did really well and made some good saves.
    We’ve developed our game in possession significantly over the last two years. We need to work on that and continue developing into the new season.."
