Forsberg is a veteran midfielder from Sweden. Although his primary position is as an attacking midfielder, he is a versatile resource who can play all over the attacking and midfield areas. He is a playmaking midfielder with a sharp kick and passing ability, and has a wide range of activities due to his high work rate.
Grew up in his ‘home’ league of Sweden. In the 2014-15 season, he impressed with Malmö, scoring 16 goals and providing seven assists in 41 games, including cup competitions, which earned him a move to the German league.
His destination was Leipzig. At the time, Leipzig were a ‘new’ club, having just been founded and were in the second division instead of the first. They had just been founded and were in the second division, not the top flight.
Since then, they’ve experienced a steep rise. In 2015-16, he scored eight goals and provided seven assists in 33 appearances, including cup competitions, to help them win promotion, and in 2016-17, he was the top assists man in the first division with a whopping 20. His performances helped Leipzig finish second in the league in their first year of promotion.
Since then, Forsberg has been a consistent performer. He led the team with over 30 appearances each season. He didn’t have the impact he had in 2016-17, but he did his job.
But the years weren’t kind to him. Forsberg is now 32 years old. This season, he was a bit less prominent. He’s played 15 games, including cup competitions, but hasn’t played more than 700 minutes.
In the end, Forsberg decided to end his long European career. He still has one year and seven months left on his contract with Leipzig, but both parties decided it was better to leave on a clap.
