Werner: We have the quality to beat Liverpool

‘We have some good but calm and nice players. We can do well with this team in the next few months and the next few years.

‘But we also have great players and we have the quality to beat them. It will be an interesting game.’

‘After one-and-a-half months here it feels right, it feels really good and the team is brilliant. We have some good but calm and nice players. We can do well with this team in the next few months and the next few years.’
