Liverpool transfer news: Timo Werner not labelled an ‘elite’ striker for one reason | Football | Sport

“I do think however, and I know this sounds insane to say today after he scored a hat-trick, but he could have had a double hat-trick today.

“Timo Werner could be a more clinical finisher, I think that would put him at an elite level.

“However, you have to like the fact that he’s always there or thereabouts around the box, always in dangerous positions, always testing the defenders and always creating dangerous opportunities for himself and for others.

“So there’s a lot to like about Timo Werner and I have to say, for a guy who had been struggling for confidence, today is a day where he can look back and say ‘alright, I like playing against Mainz, scored a hat-trick in the reverse fixture, scored a hat-trick today, we move on with the rest of the season’ and certainly Timo Werner is a big part of whatever Leipzig does from here on out.”
