In recent days he was proclaimed cup champion with Lieipzig and renewed his contract
It is the second time he has obtained this trophy in the German competition
Dani Olmo is becoming one of the most important players of his generation. The man from Terrasa, by age, performance and numbers, is a fundamental player wherever he plays. The proof is found both in his club and in the Spanish national team.
At RB Leipzig He has just experienced one of the most important weeks of his career: this weekend he was proclaimed champion of the German Cup (DFB Pokal) and renewed his contract on Thursday. It is the second time that Olmo lifts this trophy, having been the defending champion of the last edition. On this occasion they beat Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 at the Olympic stadium in Berlin. Furthermore, the extension of the agreement has revealed the prominent role that Olmo will play in the team.
Despite being sought after by many European clubs, including FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, the footballer has extended his working relationship with the Red Bull team until 2027 and There were several reasons that prompted him to make the decision, but above all the fact that the Germans have promised that their new project revolves around him.. That means Olmo will be placed in the top salary tier on the team and be the franchise player. Indeed, as has been said by the German media, the club wants to use the midfielder to convince other top players to sign for the German team. Leipzig’s idea is to set up a very ambitious project, capable of competing for the Bundesliga and the Champions League itself, and where Olmo would be the flagship.
Precisely, the Spanish player has already hinted on several occasions that his great desire is to compete to win titles and RB Leipzig’s promise goes in that direction, they want to surround Olmo with high-level players to continue collecting more important trophies .
Role in selection
But the player’s importance goes beyond his club, given that his numbers speak for themselves in the national team: In his 29 senior international games, he scored 6 goals and provided 5 assists. Luis Enrique had him as one of his most advantaged students, the coach used him in all offensive roles and convinced him to be a permanent part of his system.
Worker with and without the ball, he is the Roja player who shoots the most on goal, crosses, presses, snaps and the one who receives the most between the lines. Even with Luis de la Fuente he continues to play a leading role, in fact Dani was the player who scored the first goal in his first game as manager. Their career together dates back to 2019, when he was called up to go to the Under-21 European Championship despite being two years younger than the rest of the team.. In addition, in the second game he gave him the title and never left the eleven, to the point of being named MVP of the final. Since then the good relationship between the two has been maintained, so the man from Terrasa should also be a key player in the new team that is being built.
More stars than ever Olmo faces a sweet stage where it is expected that, without neglecting his humble character, he demonstrates once again that he is ready for new challenges.
