Timo Werner: I have no regrets over choosing Chelsea instead of Liverpool

In an interview with Evening Standard, Timo Werner reflected on his big-money move to the Premier League and how things have fared since then.

"The only thing I can say is they have a German manager," replied Werner when asked about almost joining Liverpool instead of Chelsea.

"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."

He then touched upon his relationship with Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge as he said: "I think maybe he is [demanding], because a lot of strikers this season have struggled a bit.

"I had so many disappointing moments when I normally can score. I know what I can do, because I did it in the past, maybe 100 times.

"I think it was a lot also on me, a lot on my head to get the things clear in front of goal."

Werner has found the back of the net nine times across competitions this season. He's yet to truly stamp his mark on the Premier League, despite added competition from Romelu Lukaku.

The 26-year-old German striker has started regularly of late and could have a big role in his side's FA Cup final against Liverpool on Saturday.
