Liverpool-linked Werner explains why he opted to stay at Leipzig
- The striker says he is concentrated on playing at Leipzig
- One of the reasons to stay at the club was Julian Nagelsmann's appointment as a new head coach
“I’m fully focused on playing football, and I’m striving to have the greatest possible success with RB and hopefully return to the Champions League.
“Julian Nagelsmann is one of the best coaches in Germany. To get such a coach is also a statement to the league.
“Many others wanted him too. For me, that has played an important role in my considerations. It would be appealing to work with him for a few more years.”
Timo has a contract with Leipzig until 2022. The 22-year-old has grabbed the attention of the top clubs and has been linked with a Bundesliga exit.
