Timo Werner has hailed Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp as one of the best managers in the world.

Timo Werner was once again on the scoresheet as RB Leipzig thrashed Schalke 5-0 last night to keep putting pressure on league leaders Bayern Munich in a tightly wound Bundesliga title race.

After last night’s match, the striker took his impressive goal tally to 21 in just 23 games in the league this season.

Werner’s extraordinary attacking prowess has made him a subject of interest for various clubs across Europe with Liverpool being the most notable potential destination for him in the summer.

But despite admitting that he would work well in Liverpool’s system under Jurgen Klopp, the 23-year old German international is neither in a hurry to leave nor is fixated on staying at Red Bull Arena.

“There’s one of the best managers in the world with Jurgen Klopp, and he is also German,” he told Sky Sports.

“Many things suggest that I would maybe fit in [at Liverpool] very well with my playing style. But I don’t think about that at the moment because we have so much to do with Leipzig.”

“I won’t rule out anything. We have the European Championship in the summer, I want to focus on that tournament. About everything else, I will think after the season.”
