A Hungarian footballer who always brings a smile to Gábor Király’s face

In Freiburg, Roland Sallai was at a low point last fall, then this spring he regained his former place in the starting line-up, which for the time being seems unshakable in the new season as well. In England, there were already articles about that the 25-year-old winger could be an interesting target for Liverpool. Király is cautious about this: – I know from my own example that the clubs decide on transfers in the first place. Of course, England would be a good opportunity for Roli to advance, but one should not get ahead of things.

By the way, Sallai made a particularly positive impression on Király, especially with his mentality. “I’ve always secretly watched him because I like him because of his attitude,” Király revealed. – I met him in the national team when he was still young, green-eared and very wild, since then he has developed nicely in the Bundesliga. The moments in his game, when he immediately attacks energetically after losing the ball, always catch my eye.

Not necessarily his goals and technical solutions, but his will and the fact that he is not afraid of the opponent. I always smile when I see him, because for me this uncompromising attitude is what football is all about.

The situation of two Hungarian players in Leipzig is also interesting. Péter Gulácsi is team captain and has been a starting goalkeeper for many years, but he missed the last two championships due to injury, so Janis Blaswich, the substitute goalkeeper confirmed in the summer by the Dutch Almeló, got an unexpected chance. “The team cannot survive without a goalkeeper, this is such a profession,” Király responded. – Back at Hertha, a teammate of mine said that the amount of time you miss due to injury is how much is needed to regain top form. I am sure Gula will be back in goal when he is fully fit.

By the way according to German press reports it could already take place in Saturday’s match against Eintracht Frankfurt. At this meeting, Dominik Szoboszlai can also return after his two-game suspension, which he received for elbowing against Köln, which was called arrogant by the manager of his own club. – Situations like this are necessary for a person to learn and make better decisions in the future, this is what most football players go through – assessed Király. – Dominik is a good player, but you don’t have to expect miracles from him, he will perform when no one expects him, as he has done more than once in the national team. He’s good at that, he comes when you really need him.

On Tuesday, Szoboszlai provided two assists in an 8-0 win over Teutonia Ottensen in the fourth division in the first round of the German Cup.
