Rudiger explains how he blocked Liverpool – Werner deal


Chelsea Defender, Antonio Rudiger told the Club’s website how to managed to convince Timo Werner.

The German Striker was heavily chased by Liverpool during the January transfer window, but few agreements by the Merseyside outfit blocked the deal before Chelsea lauched a last minute attack on the Leipzig Player.

“I did speak to him before because we have known each other for a long time, We spoke a lot during the lockdown and he told me he was interested in coming to England. Of course then I did my bit, what I had to do. Like everyone, I’m very excited that he’s chosen Chelsea and I’m looking forward to working with him. I’ve known him since he was 17 and he did very good in the past few years. He can be very important for us” Rudiger said.
