Chelsea forward Timo Werner admitted he is looking forward to the Champions League final against Manchester City on Saturday. Having arrived in the summer from RB Leipzig, the German international has been remembered more for the misses than for his 12 goals and 15 assists across all competitions.
Werner could still prove the doubters wrong by helping Chelsea win their second Champions League trophy against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. Speaking to Chelsea’s official website, Werner said “The Champions League is something special.”
“I think when you hear the anthem before the game and the fans get that feeling, that’s when you really start looking forward to the game. It will be great to play in front of fans again because we haven’t had them there this whole time.”
“The Champions League final is the biggest game in club football. There’s nothing bigger and we’re all looking forward to it.”
Looking back at the games leading to final, Werner admitted Chelsea were confident after their win against FC Porto. The German added “After the Atletico game, we were drawn with Porto who were seen as the easiest draw, but still proved to be very difficult opponents with their aggressive style of play.”
“But after the win against Porto, we all started to believe that we could go very far, regardless of who stood in our way.“
“We’ve had a lot of good games but I think the second leg against Real Madrid where we reached the final was special because we showed a lot of people that we can win against the big teams. That was by some distance our best game, even if it wasn’t the most decisive.“
