Werner reveals how much Lampard wanted him

Timo Werner has revealed how Frank Lampard convinced him on a move to Stamford Bridge.

The German spoke to SkySports on how much Lampard made him feel important, how he valued him and that left an impression on him.

“The discussions with the board at Chelsea were so good that I ultimately chose them

"Frank Lampard in particular stood behind me and really wanted me to know that if I went to Chelsea, I could feel just as comfortable as I do with Leipzig.”

“In the conversations with me, the coach often emphasised how much he wanted me, how much he valued me as a person," 

"Of course it's hard to give up an oasis of wellbeing like the one I've had in Leipzig for years, but you can only get ahead in a career if you take the next step.

“This season was the crossroads, otherwise I would always have stayed with Leipzig. I’ve decided on something new and I hope that my form will continue like this.”
