A player that would definitely be missed at Chelsea Timo Werner has been re-signed and unveiled by his former club RB Leipzig.
Timo Werner has made his permanent move back to his former side RB Leipzig from Chelsea FC, the move was confirmed today by the German Bundesliga side and the player was welcomed back to the club in grand style.
CHRISTOPHER VIVELL, who is the Technical Director at RB Leipzig stated:
"Timo Werner is a fantastic striker who brings another dynamic to our attack thanks to his profile. His speed and finishing is fantastic; he’ll bring our attacking game to another level and above all, make us even more unpredictable.
Timo is a Germany international. He has a lot of experience on the international stage and knows RB Leipzig very well – he’ll take on a leading role here. We have a brilliant level of variety and depth in our attack and a lot of quality going forward."
SCHOLZ, the commercial director also revealed:
"Timo Werner’s signing is a special transfer for us. We had a lot of great years together in Leipzig that saw Timo become the club’s record goalscorer and a Germany international. His return means a lot to the supporters because Timo was a real fan favourite and figure of identification for a lot of people.
Timo Werner also spoke on his permanent move back to RB Leipzig. He revealed:
"I’m very happy to be able to play for RB Leipzig again. I had a great time here between 2016 and 2020, when we performed brilliantly as newcomers in the league.
It was a dignified departure for me to leave the club as record goalscorer, but that’s in the past now and I’m looking ahead, because both I and the club have developed in the past two years.
Good luck Timo!
