Emil Forsberg finds the net in last match for RB Leipzig before joining MLS

RB Leipzig’s Emil Forsberg scored in his final home game for the German side in a 3-1 win over TSG Hoffenheim. His nine-year stint with Leipzig is coming to an end as he prepares to move to MLS side New York Red Bulls. Forsberg’s goal came with 20 minutes left in the game, securing the win and propelling Leipzig to third place in the Bundesliga table.

The victory, however, was bittersweet for Leipzig fans as they bid farewell to one of their most influential players. Forsberg leaves behind a legacy at Leipzig, holding the record for most assists (69) and scoring 71 goals in over 300 appearances for the club. He played a key role in Leipzig’s promotion to the Bundesliga and their impressive run to the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League in the 2019/20 season.

In a statement, Forsberg expressed gratitude for his time at Leipzig, calling the city and the club his “second home.” He thanked the staff, team, and fans for their unwavering support and stated that Leipzig will always hold a special place in his heart, despite his upcoming move to New York.

“The opportunity to try something else and move to New York is exciting, but we will really miss Leipzig. I’ve always said that I love the fans, this club, and this city, and that won’t change,” said Forsberg.

The 32-year-old midfielder is set to play his final game for Leipzig on December 19 in the German Super Cup against Werder Bremen. As he prepares to depart, Forsberg’s impact on Leipzig will be remembered and celebrated by the club and its supporters.

In a tweet posted by RB Leipzig English, a photo from Forsberg’s final home game was shared, expressing the emotional significance of the occasion.

Forsberg’s move to New York Red Bulls marks a new chapter in his career, but his time at Leipzig has left an indelible mark, making him a beloved figure in the club’s history. His departure will undoubtedly be felt by the team and its fans, but his legacy will continue to inspire future generations of players at RB Leipzig.
