People think generally that footballers more often than not forget those who helped them as they struggle through the very difficult path in their career to reach the top of their game.
Not many times you will hear that players show appreciation to their agents or coach who trained them during as kids in form of presenting them expensive gifts or cash reward. But in Leipzig Germany, there is one player doing that. His name is Emil Forsberg. The Swedish midfielder just bought for his agent, Hasan Cetinkaya a Ferrari.
The midfielder Forsberg who has been a huge success at RB Leipzig said: “Hasan took me from Sundsvall to where I am now, and always believed in me,” the 25-year-old midfielder told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet. “For me, it’s not a strange gift – he deserves it. He has done so much for me, it was the least I could do.”
Forsberg has been working with Cetinkaya, a retired footballer, since his early days at boyhood club Sundsvall. At the end of 2012, he moved to Malmö, before going on to Leipzig in 2015 and emerging as a star both in the Bundesliga and the Swedish national team.
Forsberg was one of Leipzig’s standout performers in their maiden Bundesliga season, scoring 8 goals and providing an eye-watering 19 assists to help his side finish second behind Bayern Munich. In February, he extended his contract with the Bundesliga club until 2022.
“Originally I didn’t want to accept it, but he threatened me to leave me,” Cetinkaya joked. “It was obviously a shock! But of course, I am very grateful for the gift.” said The agent Hassan Cetinkaya.
