Schick: 'I made the right choice'

Patrik Schick has rediscovered his form on loan at RB Leipzig and the Roma flop is “sure I made the right choice,” naming the clubs he turned down.

The 24-year-old striker has scored seven goals in 15 Bundesliga appearances since he made the transfer on loan for €3.5m with option to buy for another €29m.

“Leipzig was absolutely the right choice for my career,” he told iSport.cz.

“I had also talked to Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke 04 here in Germany. In England, there were Everton and Crystal Palace, plus Valencia in Spain.

“I just felt that Leipzig wanted me more and I was also attracted to the playing style of coach Julian Nagelsmann. I am sure that I made the right choice.”

Schick had shot to fame at Sampdoria in 2016, earning his €34m move to Roma after just one season in Serie A.

“When I left the Czech Republic, my dream was to play in Italy and I achieved that. Now I feel very attracted to England, to be honest.”
