Timo Werner “wants to play every game”



Timo Werner "wants to play every game"

National player Timo Werner is hoping for more playing time after his return to RB Leipzig with a view to the World Cup (November 20 to December 18). “A World Cup doesn’t happen too often in a player’s career, so you want to prepare for it as well as possible,” said the striker at his presentation on Wednesday.

He spoke to national coach Hansi Flick about his move from Chelsea to Leipzig, Werner said: “He said I should do what I feel comfortable with. He thought the idea of ​​returning to Leipzig was very good.”

The first home game against 1. FC Köln is on Saturday (3.30 p.m. / Sky). “If the coach thinks I’m fit enough, then I’d be happy and of course I hope that I’ll play,” said Werner: “I want to play, I want to play every game and that’s why I’m happy that it’s as quick as possible starts.”

At Chelsea he recently “didn’t have enough playing time,” said Werner. In Leipzig, on the other hand, the 26-year-old became the top scorer between 2016 and 2020. “I think a lot of people assume that I’ll come back and start scoring goals,” said Werner: “I want to do that.”
