Fowler: Chelsea bound Werner not good enough for Liverpool

Liverpool legend, Robbie Fowler is super confident his side made no mistakes not pursuing Timo Werner who is on his way to Chelsea.

Robbie Fowler said the German is no Dutch and Milan great Marco Van Basten that the Liverpool fan should worry themselves over.

He also said the Leipzig star is not good enough to start ahead of any of Liverpool’s front three.

Fowler wrote in his column in the Daily Mirror: “I’ve heard the noise ­surrounding Timo Werner in recent weeks – but I’m not a big fan.

“I realise he’s a talented player, he has moments of real brilliance in matches that underline his quality. But I stand by this: is Werner up to the standard of Liverpool’s current front three? Not for me.

“I’ve also seen the meltdown from some Liverpool fans when they ­realised he’s probably not leaving RB Leipzig for Anfield after all. It makes it seem as though he’s a Marco van Basten, a world-class player who would walk into any side.

“For the life of me, I don’t know why… does he influence games consistently enough? Not for me.

“Does he match up to the players you are signing him to challenge and replace? Not at Liverpool. Maybe at Chelsea.”

Werner has scored 25 goals and supplied eight assists in 30 Bundesliga appearances in 2018-19.
