RB Salzburg’s sporting director believes the German starlet has exceptional qualities as a player.

Karim Adeyemi

has established himself as a regular first-team player for

RB Salzburg

in their current Bundesliga campaign. The 19-year-old has appeared in 19 league matches for the Austrian side and he has managed to score two goals and provide five assists. Adeyemi has been named on the 2021 NXGN list of the world’s top footballing wonder kids as he is expected to continue his rise to stardom in the coming months.

Christoph Freund

says the German teenager has developed his special qualities at Salzburg.

"Karim has great potential and exceptional weapons, with his speed and scoring ability.

"If he continues to really step on the gas and is spared injuries, I believe he can have a really great international career.

"The next step, however, is for him to really take off with us in Salzburg in the coming months."

Adeyemi spent 18 months at Salzburg’s youth teams before breaking into the club’s first-team squad.

"We followed Karim very closely in the junior teams of Unterhaching and the German junior national teams,"

said Freund.

"He is a type of player whose qualities fit our style of football perfectly.

"He is a difference-making player who, with his extreme speed, was classified by our scouting department as a perfect Red Bull Salzburg player, which has been confirmed.

"Karim has developed very positively, especially as a personality, both on and off the pitch. He has become a professional and, despite his young age, already has a very good standing within the team.

"A lot has also happened with Karim in terms of football and he is on a very good path overall."
