RB Leipzig forward Yussuf Poulsen says he is looking forward to working with talented young German manager Julian Nagelsmann next season.
Nagelsmann will take over at Leipzig for the 2019/20 campaign and Denmark international Poulsen is already excited about the prospect of playing under the current TSG 1899 Hoffenheim boss.

“Of course this is a top transfer. I’ve heard a lot of good from other players about him,” Poulsen said via Bild.
“Julian did a super job in Hoffenheim. I am looking forward to working under him.
“The takeover of Ralf Rangnick as a coach with us, I have not noticed.
“I had my phone off on vacation, did not find out until the return flight a few days ago.”
At the age of 31, Nagelsmann is one of Europe’s most promising young managers having led Hoffenheim to unlikely Champions League berths in two consecutive seasons.
