Timo Werner has played his last game for RB Leipzig, and the 24-year-old ensured that he became RB Leipzig’s all-time leading goalscorer in his final appearance for the Bundesliga club before his move to Chelsea.

Today marked the last round of matches in the Bundesliga, and Werner helped secure a third-placed finish for his side as Leipzig ended the season with a 2-1 victory over Augsburg.

Werner scored a brace in the game, and his brace ensured he overtook Daniel Frahn to become RB Leipzig’s top scorer in the club’s history with 95 goals. Werner also equalled another Bundesliga record with his double as his record of 17 goals scored away from home this term is the same as Jupp Heynckes managed in the 1973-74 season.

Werner has ended the season with 28 Bundesliga goals which is the highest total from any German player since Mario Gomez, who also scored 28 times in the 2010-11 campaign.

At the end of his career with Leipzig, Werner managed 95 goals and 40 assists in 159 games.

What a player!
