Timo Werner has admitted he doesn't regret joining Chelsea instead of Liverpool back in 2020.

The Germany striker was heavily linked with a move to Anfield during his stellar years at RB Leipzig, but ultimately went to Stamford Bridge instead for a £47.5m deal.

While Werner hasn't hit the same goalscoring heights as he did in the Bundesliga, he has become a fan favourite at Chelsea, and he has opened up on the interest this weekend's FA Cup final opponents had in him in the past.

When asked how close he was to joining Liverpool by the Evening Standard, Werner replied: “The only thing I can say is they have a German manager. I have known him for many years before, because when I was in Stuttgart, he talked about going to Dortmund. Then I played not so well, so it was done.

“When I was in Leipzig, I had the possibility to come to the Premier League. Liverpool were also in my thoughts and were a big possibility for me, but at the end I decided for Chelsea and I won the Champions League title last year. It was not the worst decision.”
