Benjamin Henrichs on ...
… the reasons behind his move:
- "I want to play as often as possible. My career hasn't been all uphill recently - I didn't have the simplest of times at AS Monaco, so it was all the more important for me to come to Leipzig. Here I had good talks with Julian Nagelsmann, who told me how he wants to push me. Therefore, I'm happy to be at RB Leipzig and it as the best step for me."
… his role in the team:
- "Thanks to my language skills in German, English and French, it is the first time that I can communicate with everyone in the team. Therefore, I can act as a link between other and also translate sometimes if a training drill is a bit more complicated - that's where my experience comes in handy."
… the difference between Ligue 1 und der Bundesliga:
- "Ligue 1 is physically stronger, but the Bundesliga has a greater focus on tactics. Overall, the Bundesliga is of a higher quality, though both leagues are around a similar level."
… his preferred position:
- "I most enjoy playing in midfield, but I don't really mind whether I'm used as a six or in defence. I'll play wherever Julian wants me to."
