Timo Werner Reveals Who Convinced Him To Join Chelsea
Timo Werner has revealed that Frank Lampard was a crucial factor in his decision to join Chelsea, MySportDab reports.
In June, the Blues announced £45m deal for the Germany striker, who has a fantastic goalscoring record.
In 159 matches at RB Leipzig, Timo Werner scored 95 goals and provided 40 assists.
But despite interest from Liverpool and Bayern Munich, Werner decided to join Chelsea.
On Sunday, Werner was at Stamford Bridge to watch his new team-mates secure a top four finish and secure Champions League football for next season.
The 24-year-old has started training with the squad.
“Lampard was the crucial factor,” Werner told chelseafc.com.
“We talked about many things like how he wants to play, the system and how it would fit me.
“He is a very nice guy and told me what he wants to help me as a player and also as a guy.
“He knows me a little bit more now and it’s very good between us and now I am very happy to be here.
“When you have a decision to leave your old club and come to a big club like Chelsea, it was a dream come true for me because Chelsea is a very big club.
“I know players before that won the Champions League here like Drogba, current manager Frank Lampard, Petr Cech among others.
“I want to be part of a new generation here so I will give my best.”
