I agree we all tend to be eager to make diagnosis like you say. I have followed Leipzig since Forsberg did his move from Malmö. Not every game, but 5-10 per year maybe, so I’ve seen him a couple of times. The things I wrote was not based on this match, these are problems I’ve seen all the time. Poor decision making, poor awareness when players run in behind him, and pushing forward at the wrong occasions. Then obviously he has many strong sides. Most of his weak sides are also things that can be trained away. All CB at age 22 have weaknesses.I think in general it's fair to say that he has issues with concentration or decision making. But I think people are often too eager to diagnose these things in situations involving young defenders. Like in the first scene his team mates have allowed the opposition to create an overload against him. He opted for the risky play and it didn't work, but even if he stays passive Reus and Haaland would have played out a 2v1 against him and Sancho would have been forgotten on the far side.
