Chelsea new signing Timo Werner believes it is ‘crazy’ he is now at the club being managed by Frank Lampard and admits the Blues and Manchester United were the two Premier League clubs he admired growing up.
Werner made a big-money move from RB Leipzig to Stamford Bridge this summer and is keen to help the club close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City.
The forward will hope to be on the scoresheet this weekend when Chelsea return to action against Southampton.
Werner has outlined his admiration for Chelsea and United growing up and how the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Didier Drogba inspired him.
He told Three: “For me, it is a little bit of a dream come true to come and play now in the biggest league in the whole world.

“Of course as a child you don’t see much of the Premier League clubs but you see the teams at the Champions League.
“You see the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United. These were the clubs that in youth were winning a lot.
“You see maybe young Ronaldo, or here at Chelsea Didier Drogba and also Frank Lampard the manager. They have a lot of legends in the club here.
“When you come into the club they are working for the club and when you see them as a child, like 10, and then you see, Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, Petr Cech, you say wow it’s crazy I am here with them now.”
