Timo Werner rediscovers self in Bundesliga

By Oviri Kelvin, Sports Editor

Former Chelsea striker Timo Werner has rediscovered his scoring form after returning to German Bundesliga for RB Leipzig.

Werner completed the move from Chelsea in the summer transfer window having failed to secure a regular starting place in Thomas Tuchel’s squad.

Three seasons ago, Chelsea snapped the Germany international to Stamford Bridge in 2020 following his exploits for RB Leipzig where he finished the Bundesliga 2019-2020 season as the second highest goalscorer, behind Robert Lewandowski.

However, the player on getting to Stamford Bridge, could not perform as he did in the German topflight division under Thomas Tuchel who had to deploy him from the central striking position to the wings.

Despite the switch of role, the 26-year-old who scored 91 goals in 157 appearances for Leipzig to become the club’s all-time record scorer, could not replicate the same feat for two seasons in the English Premier League for Chelsea.

Consequently, Chelsea sold Werner whom they bought for €53m back to Leipzig for €20m in a four-year deal and the player who played five Premier League matches before he scored his debut goal for the Blues, opened the goal chart with a 30 yards powerful strike for Leipzig against Cologne in his first Bundesliga appearance on return to Die Roten Bullen.

Leipzig in their next Bundesliga fixture will travel to Alte Forsterei Stadium to face Union Berlin and the pair of Timo Werner and Christopher Nkunku, who both scored against Cologne, will lead Die Roten Bullen’s attack.
