Werner was speaking to the Einfach Luppen podcast when he opened up about his time in the English Premier League.
“For me, the fun of playing football is in the foreground. Of course, I had great success at Chelsea. But the fun got a bit lost in the end because I didn’t play regularly anymore.
I think the coach’s system of play didn’t suit me perfectly. That’s why it was clear to me that I wanted to take a new step. I’m at an age where I want to play as much as I can.”
