Sporting director Bernhard Seonbuchner

I am pleased that the negotiations went so well, and that I am now a FC Red Bull Salzburg player. Everything I have seen from the club so far has been extremely positive. One of my aims is to develop like so many young players have before me and use the chances that you get here. I can hardly wait now to meet my new team-mates and introduce myself to the fans. I would like to play my part in helping the club achieve its aims and win as many titles as possible.
