Timo Werner hasn’t found the goals too easy to come by in the Premier League, as he has failed to score in five Premier League games this season.

Werner who scored 28 league goals in the German Bundesliga last season, has scored twice in six Premier League games so far, with his two goals coming in one game against Southampton.

RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann has now revealed the private conversation he had with Werner. According to Nagelsmann who harbours dream of managing in the Premier League, Werner told him that scoring in the Premier League is very difficult compared to the Bundesliga.

Asked about the differences between English and German football, Nagelsmann said: “I’ve never been a manager or a player in the Premier League, so I could not compare it in detail to the Bundesliga.

“But when I watch games of the Premier League I recognise that it’s a very tough and good league.

“I talked to Timo Werner as well, he told me that it’s hard to play against teams in the Premier League – a bit harder, sometimes, than to play against teams in the Bundesliga.

“So perhaps it’s one of the best leagues in the world, I think that’s clear, but perhaps it’s the best league in the world.

“But if I will be in the Premier League in the future, perhaps then I could compare it a bit more in detail and then you can ask me the question again and I will answer in a bit more detail.”
