He told reporters: 'There is nothing we can do about it. He knows what he has in Leipzig and also what he has with me. 

'I show him that — he gets many chances to develop himself. I don't know if it will help him that much if I tell him every day.

'A player has to feel that he can get better. If he doesn't feel that, it wouldn't do any good if I kept on telling him to stay here.

'In the end, it is his life, his career, he can decide that. I can't think of anything new to say to Timo.'
