Timo Werner has warned Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final opponents Real Madrid that he is hungry to reach the final of the Champions League.

Last year, the German international striker was left out of RB Leipzig’s squad for the quarter finals when the competition restarted, after he completed his move to Chelsea.

Werner said: “Last year I dropped out in the quarter finals because of the move.

“I had a lot of criticism for that in Germany because it is not often you are in the quarter finals of the Champions League.

“But now I have reached it again, one year later, with my new club. I can show everybody I can do it not only with one team but with two, two years in a row.

“It makes me proud – and more hungry to make it this year to the final. And maybe to win.”

He added: “To reach the Champions League final and win it is the dream of every kid.

“We face a very strong opponent. We want to keep pushing and give everything we have. It’s very difficult because we have to also keep an eye on the Premier League because we have big games there. It is not boring!

“The Champions League is the most difficult cup in the world to win. But we also have a big chance to win the FA Cup. We have a good team. We are not here because we are lucky.”
