RB Leipzig will sign up to six players after qualifying for the Champions League for the first time, director of sport Ralf Rangnick says.

Leipzig, will play in the group stage after a 4-1 win at Hertha Berlin on Saturday guaranteed a top-three finish in the Bundesliga.

“At the start of the season, we just talked about being worry-free [from relegation],” Rangnick said.

“I am simply proud.”

Leipzig are second in the table, with two games to go and10 points behind champions Bayern Munich, it is impossible for the club to finish below the third spot.

The club is backed by the Austrian energy drink manufacturer Red Bull, and with their help Leipzig reached Germany’s top flight last year after four promotions in seven seasons.

Their quick rise to the top stages in football has led to them being labelled “Germany’s most hated club” and opposition fans have staged protests against their commercial structure.

“When we play in the Champions League, we’ll have to strengthen the squad,” added Rangnick,

“Whether three or four new additions will be enough, I do not know. Perhaps we’ll need five or six and we need more quality across the board.”

The win over Hertha Berlin was Leipzig’s 20th in 32 league games since winning promotion last season.
