Why I Snubbed Liverpool For Chelsea – Timo Werner

Timo Werner

Chelsea striker, Timo Werner has talked on the reason why he snubbed Liverpool for Chelsea, as the two Premier League clubs prepare to face each other this weekend.

The 24-year-old secured a permanent move to Stamford Bridge this summer in a transfer worth £47.6 million, after months of speculation linking him with the Reds.

It is believed Liverpool hesitated in submitting an official bid because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Chelsea pounced and struck a deal for Werner, who declined to play in the Champions League knockout stages for RB Leipzig, so he can make a strong start for Frank Lampard’s men

“There are some other clubs like Liverpool, they have a great team and maybe I could fit good in some other team.

“But in the end, I decided for Chelsea, because it was the best decision I could take, not only because of the style of football but also what they have shown me.

“I think it was a hard decision but I am very, very excited and proud and happy that I decided like this,” Werner told a news conference.”
