Of course, Timo Werner enjoys returning to his Swabian homeland, where he grew up and was trained as a footballer.
But the 24-year-old striker is currently not the memory, but the new challenges at the top of his personal list of priorities. Werner wants to give his new club FC Chelsea a new title glory in England – and also become a reliable goal-scoring machine for Joachim Löw.
His personal goals coincide with those of the federal coach, the native of Stuttgart revealed: “I would also like to show here that I can score goals as I did in Leipzig.” Werner had retired from RB as last season’s best German goalkeeper with 28 goals, the Saxons won around 53 million euros. Werner scored a total of 91 goals in the Bundesliga.
In the DFB team, things have been “not so round” recently, Werner said, and wants to “regularly score goals” for Germany again in the European Championships season. He has been in the Eagle jersey for eleven games in 29. At his first international match at Stuttgart’s home stadium in September 2017, Werner contributed two goals to the 6-0 festival against Norway. “If I were to repeat it almost like that, the others wouldn’t mind,” the ex-VPB player said. And even if there is a stronger opponent waiting in the Nations League on Thursday with Spain, “memories come high, of course”.
