Blues and Super Eagles legend 'likes' Chelsea's post announcing departure of Germany striker

Germany international Timo Werner has left Stamford Bridge on a permanent transfer back to his former club RB Leipzig for a fee in the region of 30 million euros after failing to adjust to the rigours of English football.

 

The rapid attacker is leaving the club having won the Champions League, Super Cup and the Club World Cup.

 

Super Eagles and Blues legend  Obi Mikel has liked a Chelsea Instagram post announcing the departure of the  26-year-old forward to the German Bundesliga.

The post has been liked by Mikel and 114, 690 Instagram users as at the time of writing this report.

 

Werner has struggled in his short time in London and has been heavily criticized for his profligate finishing and it appears Mikel endorses his move back to Germany.
