Leipzig manager Tedesco: Werner needs to enjoy what's he's doing

RB Leipzig manager Domenico Tedesco says Timo Werner must enjoy his football again.


returned to


on Wednesday just two years after joining


in a deal worth around £25m.

The 26-year-old striker scored just 10 Premier League goals in 56 appearances and failed to meet the expectations.

Leipzig manager Domenico Tedesco says Werner should play with smile on his face.

"As for Timo, there is no pressure at all,"

Tedesco told a news conference.

"Of course, we notice what kind of commotion that's creating. He's coming back, he played for Leipzig before as you know.

"He did a good job then. That's all we ask for. He just needs to enjoy what he's doing. He did the full pre-season with Chelsea but only played two games with them.

"So we will not burden him. We all have to be careful that we don't overload him. We just want him to have fun, and show his strengths, of which he has many.

"The rest will come bit by bit. This won't happen overnight.”

Leipzig finished fourth in the Bundesliga last season and alongside Werner they have signed David Raum and Xaver Schlager.

Tedesco said:

"I am happy to have these guys on our team. You feel the biggest pressure from yourself.

"We would like to play every game like the one in Stuttgart but then also win. Other than that, [we want] the feeling to look forward and the joy to have a squad like this.

"We are looking forward to midweek fixtures soon. Then we can get things going with this squad. This will also be important.

"It makes a difference if we play every seven days or every three and a half days. Playing will be more fun. It was like that last season and now our team is even broader."
