Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has opened up on how he ensured the club secured the signing of Timo Werner
Werner is regarded as one of the finest talents in the game and after a stunning season over in the Bundesliga last year, in which he netted 28 goals, his performances let to speculation that both Liverpool and City were interested.
Werner, however, was seemingly convinced to join our club when Lampard and Petr Cech personally went to meet the attacker earlier this year for face-to-face talks, and Lampard has revealed how he convinced Werner to make that move to the Blues.
“You understand that when there is competition from the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City that you need to state your best case to the player,” Lampard told GOAL
“Having been that player at one point, I tried to sell the club to the best of my ability when I spoke to players. Petr in his role does the same.
“With a player like Timo, we were very keen to bring him in. He needs to feel that from us. I loved everything that he said to me in those conversations, the same with all the players.
“That manager-player conversation is really important because our relationship needs to be good. All you can do is your best as a club.
“I think we can be happy that we have brought in players of their level. That is just how we tried to work. Now it is stage two, get them settled and playing to the best of their ability.”
We are so happy that the club managed to sign Werner, he is a brilliant striker that will bang in the goals for the club.
