'Why I don't regret choosing Chelsea over Reds'

English Premier League

German forward Timo Werner has explained why he has no regrets about choosing to join Chelsea over Liverpool last year.

Werner broke out in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig where he registered 95 goals and 40 assists in 159 appearances.

The Germany international then sealed a move to Stamford Bridge ahead of the 2021/22 season but only scored 12 goals across all competitions.

Despite the low scoring tally, the 26-year-old had no regrets about turning down a move to Anfield last campaign.

“The only thing I can say is they have a German manager,” Wenrer told London Evening Standard.

“I have known him for many years before, because when I was in Stuttgart, he talked about going to Dortmund. Then I played not so well, so it was done.

“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.”
