Chelsea striker Timo Werner has revealed how he watched the Premier League as a young player.

Werner, who joined during the summer, from RB Leipzig, has revealed that playing in the Premier League is a dream come true for him.

The Blues summer signing has revealed how he looked up to legends like the current Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, as well as Chelsea legends Petr Cech, Ashley Cole, John Terry and Didier Drogba, and he’s glad to be with them as they are still part of the club.

“The Premier League has become bigger and bigger and now it is the best league in the whole world,” Werner said in an interview with 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.

“It’s a lot of fun.”
