Timo Werner reflects on his time at the Stamford Bridge.
The German forward re-signed for RB Leipzig this summer after a failed two-year spell with Chelsea.
He was brought in by ex-manager Frank Lampard back in summer 2020 as he was regarded one of the most sought-after strikers in European football.
On his debut season, he managed only 12 goals in all competitions.
The 26-year-old was struggling to adapt to the Premier League and was expected improve in his second season with the club.
But he scored one less finishing with 11 goals in the 2021/22 season and finally completed his return to former club RB Leipzig this summer.
Werner expected something more during his time at England.
He said: “Personally, it wasn’t the very best time I had imagined something more. I learned a lot, won the Champions League and other trophies.
“I enjoyed the two years abroad very much – and enjoyed London very much. I had one laughing eye and one crying eye.
“In Leipzig, not everything went so smoothly in the first few weeks, but the football under the new coach suits me very well and prepares me for what is required in the national team.”
