Timo Werner says he made the right decision joining Chelsea instead of Liverpool and he has come to Stamford Bridge to win titles.
The Germany international attracted plenty of interest this summer when he decided he was ready to leave RB Leipzig after a successful spell.
Liverpool were one of those chasing Werner, but in the end it was Chelsea who won the race after paying a fee of around £47.5million.
The 24-year-old while speaking on why he decided to join Frank Lampard’s team said:
“When I decided to leave Leipzig I talked to different clubs, of course, next to Chelsea. There were some other clubs that I talked to. But for me I don’t want to talk about so much about other clubs, because in the end I decided for Chelsea.
“Of course there were some other clubs also, like Liverpool – who have a great team, and also maybe I can fit good to some other teams.
“But at the end I decided [to join] Chelsea because for me it was the best decision I can take. Not only because of the style of football but also because of what they have shown to me.
“I think it was a hard decision in the end but I am very, very excited and proud that I decided like this because now when I have been here for at least one and a half months, it feels right.
“It feels good. The team is brilliant. We have some very good, but always calm and nice players. It is fun to player here at Chelsea and to be part of the team.
“We can do very well with this team in the next few months and the next few years.”
Timo Werner made his presence felt on his debut as he was instrumental in Chelsea’s first goal having been brought down by Brighon goalkeeper.
