Timo Werner scored RB Leipzig’s penalty goal to give them a highly deserved win over Tottenham Hotspur. But how long does Werner still tr-gt the RB jersey? As in the past year, his interchange flirts start from scratch.

It was August 25. At the time, RB Leipzig announced that Timo Werner had extended his contract by three years until 2023. It was a few weeks ago. Also for RB fer the Werner side. With FC Bayern Munich, a buyer is available, Mann thought. The Monchnerthen then decided against a commitment of the German national player and thus cleared the way for the contract termination.

Now, almost six months of spéter, according to a report by the Sport Picture especially from Liverpool FC for Werner. Werner can therefore have an exit clause in He of 55 to 60 million euros until the end of April in order to leave the Red Bulls prematurely.

Werner Ober Liverpool interest: “Make a pride”

After his first appearance on the island and his winning goal at the Spurs Werner could not hide his interest at least. “Liverpool is the best team in the world. It makes you proud to be associated with them. I naturally also get the talk with me.” “I know they have good players and I have to be swayed if I want to play there,” he said. Skymicrophone.

These statements sound like those made by Werner almost a year ago after the match in Munich. At the time, he praised FC Bayern and thus fuelled the courts for a change of mind. As with Bayern, the question of where Werner will be used in the offensive around Salah, Mane and Firmino is the question of where Werner will be used in the offensive.

Already in January lie-Werner in an interview with the Image-Newspaper leaked that he “plays with Fritz-Walter-Weather and again england also not bad”wre. A change is “certainly attractive at some point,” but not an issue at the time. “There is no change wish now.”

After a change of club, Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann also woke up to the apparent resurgent of the club. In the Sport Picture He advised his from a move to Jurgen Klopp’s team: He won’t get the status he has here in the first few years. That’s what I say.”

Werner is an undisputed regular at RB Leipzig and is an integral part of the club. Although the Sturker did not score a mandatory player in the calendar year 2020 before the game in London and gave away many big chances, for example in the top games against Gladbach or in Munich, no votes were raised. Of course, his 20 mandatory goals were also overtaken.

Mintzlaff: “Every time I think about Timo, I have a beam on my face”

“Every time I think about Timo, I have a glow on my face,” club boss Oliver Mintzlaff praised his offensive man after playing for spurs in the mixed zone. But he also explained that Werner was “not a machine” and that his shape curve “was like a sine curve.ts” goes k’nnte.

It’s not just the standing wre in Liverpool that is different. Werner’s playing style also measured itself. Especially in the national team it became clear that the position of the nine was not the most suitable, but that he rather needs a tall partner, like Patrick Schick or before yussuf Poulsen, who himself has a lot of aerial doubles or the ball well in the Storm centre. and forward it.

In Leipzig, however, there is still no official interest of Liverpool in Werner. “We’re making these reports a long way. Someone invents something and everyone else copies it. Werner is happy yesterday and will play the rest of the season,” Mintzlaff said before departing for London on Tuesday. But thanks to the exit clause Werner did not inform his club either.

So RB would suffer the same fate as Ajax Amsterdam: success in the league and in the Champions League, but hardly any chance of keeping stars. Addressed by Spox And Goal On the comparison, Mintzlaff explains: “We don’t want to be the new Ajax, we are RB Leipzig and we want to continue our philosophy.” The only question is whether Werner wants to continue this philosophy or whether this time the temptations after a change are gr’er.
