Forsberg has only played 57 minutes of football during Leipzig’s opening games of the season. Having joined the German club in 2015, Çetinkaya believes that Forsberg’s playing time is now being affected by someone at the club, Bulinews reported.

"Emil has always stood by the club. Now there is rotation due to the many strong attacking players, which is okay. What is not okay at all is that Emil is not part of this rotation,” he said.

He added that Forsberg trained well and deserved more respect but that there were people at the club who didn’t think so.

While he didn’t mention any names, he added that his client was being held back in certain areas, not by the coach and not by the club’s CEO Oliver Mintzlaff, but by someone else who prefers players he knows from RB Salzburg.

Çetinkaya then went on to add that Forsberg had received numerous offers from other clubs but that a transfer was not an option because the player loved the city and the club and didn’t want to leave.

According to TransferMarkt, Forsberg has played 262 games for RB Leipzig and has scored 58 goals during his time at the club.
