The Swedish playmaker’s family is blessed with football genes. Granddad Lennart played for local Swedish club Sundsvall while dad Leif was also a mainstay at the same club. Forsberg started his career with his home-town team and joined the first team squad in 2009 when the club was playing in Sweden's second tier of football, Superettan. He went on to play several matches for Sundsvall in the four years before making a move two FC Malmo, the country’s biggest football club. His first season at the club proved to be a success as he played 28 matches out of 30 and scored five goals for the club as they won the league title. As recognition of Forsbergs feats during the season he won the award for Allsvenskan Midfielder of the year and was nominated for the Swedish Midfielder of the Year trophy. In January 2015, Forsberg joined German second league side RB Leipzig on a three and a half year deal, with whom he’s grown strength to strength. He recorded a league high 19 assists in the team’s first season in the top flight in the 2017-18 season and was one of their key players as they finished runners up to a viciously dominant Bayern Munich side.
