Not content with providing assists galore for his RB Leipzig teammates on the pitch, Emil Forsberg has shown that he can be just as generous off it, after buying a Ferrari for his agent Hasan Cetinkaya.

Most of us might express our gratitude with a heartfelt thank you card, or perhaps even a bottle of bubbly - Forsberg said it with a high-powered Italian sports car.

"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.

"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."

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 Saxony club until 2022.
