Werner: I’m getting stronger and seeing space differently

Low’s men are in the Saxony city, a place Werner knows well having spent four years there with RB Leipzig, ahead of this evening’s UEFA Nations League tie against Ukraine. The Germans are second in a tight group, level on six points with the side managed by former Blues striker Andriy Shevchenko and one point adrift of Spain.

Werner missed the midweek win against Czech Republic, in which Toni Rudiger featured throughout, but has since linked up with the squad and should start against Ukraine, according to Low. The 24-year-old is looking forward to being back in Leipzig and eager to get back to winning ways in the group after only one victory to date.

‘I’ve really been looking forward to coming back here,’ he said. ‘It felt a little like I was coming home after being on holiday. I always like returning to Leipzig so international games here are always twice as special for me.
