Werner is Cemented in History
Timo Werner made his last appearance with RB Leipzig. He was able to help secure their 2-1 win against Augsburg. As well as, their third-place standing in Bundesliga. With his last appearance, Werner is cemented in Leipzig and Bundesliga’s history.
Werner was able to score 28 goals in a single campaign. This has not happened at Leipzig since Mario Gomez in the 2010-11 season, where he also scored 28 goals.
The 24-year-old was also able to obtain another club record. Werner surpassed Daniel Frahn in the total amount of goals scored with the club. He was able to get a total of 95 goals for the club before he left.
Werner has also become the leading German scorer in Bundesliga in a single campaign with 28 goals. The only other person that has beaten him is Robert Lewandowski. The Polish player has been able to score 34 goals in a single season with Bayern Munich. Which has attributed to the reason why Lewandowski was awarded the Bundesliga player of the season this year.
Not only did Werner get the honor of being the German leading scorer in Bundesliga, but he also beat another record. He was able to get 17 away goals this season. That hasn’t happened in a single season since Jupp Heynckes in the 1973-74 campaign.
The record-breaker can now look forward to the future now that he is forever in Bundesliga and Leipzig history. His £53 million deal with Chelsea is his next move. Werner will be able to make £180,000 a week with Chelsea.
Frank Lampard is excited about the arrival of Werner.
“I have certainly followed him for a while just as a talented player before I took this job,” said Lampard.
“He will strengthen us, he is a huge talent who had a fantastic season.
“I had good conversations with Timo personally. He understands our project and what we want to do as a club. We’re pleased he’s decided to come to us and look forward to him joining next season.”
Werner fits into Lampard’s vision seamlessly. It will be exciting to see what Werner can do at Chelsea.
