Timo Werner decided against moving to Bayern Munich in the summer of 2020 and joined Chelsea instead. Although the attacker won the Champions League with the Blues right away, he was never really able to convince himself there. However, he does not regret his move to the island.
At Chelsea, Timo Werner was best known for missing big chances. Even his own supporters often mocked the German international, who was increasingly losing self-confidence. Werner's playing times dwindled in particular last season, which is why he decided to leave the Blues and return to RB Leipzig in the summer. However, Werner does not regret having decided to join Chelsea two and a half years ago. "I think the path you take is always the right one in the end," philosopher Werner told Sport Bild. Although he would have had "two coaches at Bayern with Flick and Nagelsmann who would have been good for me", it is good not to "regret anything". The attacker is now simply trying to take the positive aspects with him. The time on the island made him "mature and more reflective" and also made him want to "go abroad again at the end of his career".
After his foot injury, which cost him the World Cup, Werner is now ready again - he was able to complete 50 minutes in the last test. Although he can still feel his foot slightly, he will try to help the team against Bayern. The attacker described the top game on Friday (8:30 p.m.) as "pointing the way", which he is probably right about. Leipzig are currently six points behind FCB. In the event of a defeat, RB would probably have to write off the championship. Nothing else is Werner's goal. "We want that as soon as possible," said the 26-year-old, but also pointed out that "it's difficult to plan for a title".
