RB Leipzig Hungarian midfielder provides fitness update after his recovery from a long-term injury.

Dominik Szoboszlai

, who joined

RB Leipzig

from

Salzburg

in January 2021, missed the second half of the last season and the Euro 2020 tournament due to a persistent adductor injury.

The Hungary international, however, managed to make his first appearance for Leipzig on Saturday in the Red Bulls’ 1-0 victory over AZ Alkmaar.

In a post-match interview with

Kicker

, the 20-year-old midfielder said:

"I was very happy to finally be on the pitch in a game again, to wear the jersey, to see the fans. It was very nice. Of course there is still room for improvement, but that is normal after such a long time. For us, it was good to start with a win.

"Maybe I'm a few percent off, but I actually feel fit. Because I was out for so long, we decided that in the first week of training I would not do the full program, but increase the intensity step by step. Now I'm in full training."
