Expect Tyler Adams in RB Leipzig matchday squad Saturday, says manager

American fans could see more than one familiar face on the team sheet when RB Leipzig face Borussia Dortmund in both teams' return from the Bundesliga winter break this Saturday.

New York Red Bulls product Tyler Adams will at least be on Leipzig's 18-man roster, manager Ralf Rangnick indicated to kicker in a story published Thursday.

While Adams of course eventually hopes to do more than simply make the squad, doing so is a notable accomplishment in itself since the 19-year-old was only able to begin full training with his new side earlier this month.

Meanwhile, fellow American Christian Pulisic remains at Dortmund through the remainder of the season before departing for England and his record-breaking move to Chelsea.
