UK: Moving to Chelsea was ‘hard decision’ - Werner after rejecting Liverpool

United Kingdom, London
September 16, 2020 at 15:59 GMT -00:00 · Published

German international Timo Werner revealed at a press conference in London, Wednesday, that he made the right decision in signing with Chelsea over rival Liverpool ahead of their Premier League clash on Sunday.

"At the end I decided for Chelsea not only because of the style of football, but because of what they've shown to me and, yes, I think it was a hard decision in the end, but I'm very excited, very proud and very happy that I've decided like this because now, in the end, now that I'm here for maybe two months, or one and half, it feels right, it feels really good," said Werner, adding that he came to "win titles."

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reportedly spoke directly with Werner in a bid to convince the 24-year-old forward to move to Anfield.

"I wanted to have the feeling to play in the Premier League, to play for such a big club like Chelsea. That was the reason why I came here," the forward said.

Werner joined Chelsea on a £45m (€49m/$58m) move from RB Leipzig this summer.
