Liverpool fans are delighted Reds didn’t sign Timo Werner after hilarious moment
A number of Liverpool supporters have been mocking Timo Werner, admitting their relief that the Reds didn’t sign him.
Jurgen Klopp was endlessly linked with making a move for his compatriot in the summer transfer window, but he ended up joining Chelsea.
At the time, it felt as though Liverpool had missed out on a world-class attacking player, but the early signs this season suggest otherwise.
Werner has endured a terrible start to life at Chelsea, scoring just four goals in 17 Premier League appearances, and not finding the net in the competition since early November.
On the flip side, Liverpool snapped up Diogo Jota instead, with the Portuguese excelling before injury curtailed a run of form that saw him score nine times in 17 games.
On Sunday, Werner was ineffective in Chelsea’s 3-1 defeat at home to Manchester City, with one moment summing up his afternoon.
The Germany international kicked the flag while taking a corner, in what was a humorous incident for those of a non-Blues persuasion.

These Liverpool fan reacted the clip and revealed how happy they are that the Reds didn’t sign Werner.
Werner isn’t serious. He’s injured himself taking a short corner by hitting the corner flag 😂

Anyone still think Liverpool were ‘beaten’ to the punch on Werner ? He’s not a Liverpool player because Liverpool decided against him.

No way Timo Werner injured himself by trying to take a corner kick, Liverpool dodged a bullet in signing that blonde Jesse Lingard
