Ex-Germany star Oliver Bierhoff believes Timo Werner was right to pick the Premier League and Chelsea ahead of staying in the Bundesliga.

Werner has been one of the most talked about players of the past few weeks, as all the major clubs are reportedly interested in trying to secure a transfer deal for the pacy little German star.

But there was some talk in the media that Bundesliga Champions Bayern Munich were also interested in trying to acquire the services of Werner, as they sought a long-term solution to the ageing Robert Lewandowski.

But Werner made the big choice to move to the Premier League this summer, and Bierhoff has backed the young mans decision.

“There’s a lot of competition at Bayern, so you have to have a certain character. He’s more of a player who lives on continuity and trust,” he said to Sport1. “English football is good for him. He’ll have a good development there. I see him there more than in a team that works purely with technical football.

“He is a player who needs space, who needs depth and who plays out his speed. Maybe that was also a thought when changing.

“Timo always wants to play. Maybe there are also financial aspects. For example, Chelsea said: ‘We cannot take the risk that he will start with us injured or tired’.

“I believe that there has been pressure on Timo from various sides.”

It doesnt matter anymore if he made the right decision, he is coming and now needs to prove that he is worth the money
