RB Leipzig striker, Timo Werner has come out to say that he would prefer a move to abroad over a switch to Bayern Munich.
The German recently revealed that even if he has absolute respect for Bayern and their head coach Hansi Flick but he wants the opportunity to play outside of Germany.
According to him, he wants to challenge himself in another league and play football in a new environment.
He added that he has developed further under Julian Nagelsmann and his personality on and off the pitch will keep improving.
His words, “Bayern are a great club, we don’t need to talk about it, and Hansi Flick has proven this season he is a really good head coach,”
“But if a move were to become an issue at some point, I would be more tempted by a move abroad than a move to Bayern.
“It’s just that the challenge of another league would appeal to me a little more than a move within the Bundesliga.
“Of course, it also important that mutual respect is there as much as possible. That’s why I chose RB Leipzig at the time, and why I would choose the club for [the] next step as one where I would get that feeling.”
On his past failed move to Bayern, “I can’t answer what motivated Bayern back then,”
“I am happy and satisfied that I extended my contract here and played in Leipzig this season.
“In my eyes I have developed further under Julian Nagelsmann and have matured as a personality and taken on more responsibility.
“I am totally grateful for that. I really appreciate what I have at RB Leipzig and would therefore never say: ‘I have to get out of here!'”
