Timo Werner grew up watching Man United win everything
Sunday, October 22, 2017
RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner revealed he would be interested in a move to the Premier League if the opportunity ever arises in future.
The 21-year-old has been linked with Liverpool in the past, but explained he grew up dreaming about playing for Man United.
"As a small boy, you always dream of the huge clubs. In earlier days, it was Manchester United,” he told Sky.
"Under Sir Alex Ferguson, they always had great players, they always won. As a small boy, you always prefer the teams which are winning.
"That's something you can easily forget, especially when everything is going well. You see how you develop, that you play in the German national team – the number one, the world champion.
"Then you start to dream of perhaps playing somewhere else sometime."
This season Werner has scored five goals in seven Bundesliga appearances and if he does eventually decide to get out of Leipzig he will not be short of interested clubs.
He has ambitions to win major silverware and would love to achieve something with his current club.
"We definitely work hard on that and I think, this season, the chances are good in the cup and the league," he added.
"But that means a lot of hard work and if we can reach that with Leipzig it would be great. If it happens at some time with another club, that's ok for me, too."
