Speaking recently in an interview with FourFourTwo, Werner disclosed an admiration for both Liverpool and United, though admitted the Red Devils would be the team for him if he had to pick.

‘Yes, playing in the Premier League is a dream for me,’ said Werner.

‘Manchester United and Liverpool were the teams I watched quite a lot in England. They were the two that I’m a little bit a fan of, because they have so much history.’
