RB Leipzig has a clear goal this season with qualifying for the Champions League. CEO Oliver Mintzlaff calls in the ‘Sport Bild’: “Now it is time to put the most successful season in the young Bundesliga history: In addition to the already secure quarter-finals in the Champions League, the qualification for the premier class again next season. That must be the next step, which will then have a major impact on our overall business. “
If the renewed leap into the premier class is missed, the club faces several consequences. The planned improvement of the club’s infrastructure would have to be put on hold. In addition, a financial hole of up to 60 million euros would have to be filled with player sales.
