Timo Werner made his mark for German side RB Leipzig, where he scored goals week in, week out, for the past four years before sealing a move to Chelsea over the summer.

Werner returned to Leipzig on Saturday, and scored a brace for Germany in their 3-1 win over Ukraine.

Werner, who is RB Leipzig’s all-time leading goalscorer, was pleased to have scored a brace at his former stomping ground.

“My first goal was really simple because the assist from Leon [Goretzka] was very, very good,” Werner told DFB.de.

“To score two goals here in Leipzig, where I had four great years, is a great feeling. I always enjoy returning to Leipzig. It’s a shame that we couldn’t have any fans in here.

“Overall, it was a good performance. Our form is picking up and going forward things are looking pretty good. We’re also getting more solid at the back.

“We are working hard so that we can have a good Euros next year.”
