Red Bull Leipzig signing Oliver Burke says he can handle record price-tag

Oliver Burke says he's ready to prove himself at Red Bull Leipzig.

The Scot, a target for Manchester United and Arsenal, left Nottingham Forest for RBL last week.

The 19-year-old is Scotland's most expensive player after his move last Sunday, but says he is dealing with the expectation.

"You're always going to have pressure. It's part and parcel of being a footballer," said Burke. "If you can't take pressure then you're in the wrong game, I believe."
