Timo Werner has admitted he doesn’t regret joining Chelsea instead of Liverpool back in 2020
During his brilliant years at RB Leipzig, the Germany striker was frequently linked with a move to Anfield, but finally chose Stamford Bridge for a fee of £47.5 million.
While Werner hasn’t scored as many goals for Chelsea as he did in the Bundesliga, he has become a fan favourite, and he has spoken out about the interest this weekend’s FA Cup final opponents once had in him.
When asked by the Evening Standard how close he was to joining Liverpool, Werner answered:
“The only thing I can tell is they have a German manager.”
I’ve known him for many years since he mentioned going to Dortmund when I was in Stuttgart. Then I didn’t play that well, thus
“When I was in Leipzig, I had the possibility to come to the Premier League. Liverpool were also in my thoughts and were a big possibility for me, but at the end I decided for Chelsea and I won the Champions League title last year. It was not the worst decision.”
Werner added that he is a huge fan of the work Jurgen Klopp has done over his managerial career, though did add that his own boss Thomas Tuchel is on a similar level to the Liverpool coach.
