Some critics in Germany have accused Timo Werner of letting his RB Leipzig team-mates down as he intends to sit out the rest of their Champions League campaign to minimise any injury risk ahead of his Chelsea transfer.
His agent Karlheinz Forster has hit back, stating: “What annoys me is that Timo is now put in a corner and portrayed as a bad sportsman, who lets his teammates down. I have to disagree with that quite clearly.
“It would have been anything but a good start for Timo at his new club if he had returned to Leipzig after his holidays to prepare for the restart of the Champions League.
“All involved parties – and not just Timo – decided that he will move to Chelsea on 1 July and not in mid or late August.”
