Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Timo Werner performance v South Korea

Liverpool have been linked with the Germany forward, who struggled in Russia.

Germany are out of the World Cup after losing 2-0 to South Korea. Sweden and Mexico now advance from their group with the Germans heading home in the first round for the first time since 1938.

The inquiry now begins into what went wrong for Germany. Too much reliance on the old guard? Manuel Neuer back too soon? Leroy Sane?

But for many German fans, it was the performances of Timo Werner that will be to blame.

The RB Leipzig forward came into the tournament on fire. The 22-year-old scored 21 goals in 45 games last season. However, he failed to find the net at the World Cup in hard-working but ultimately toothless displays.

His performance in the South Korea game, where he squandered chances, caught the attention of Liverpool fans.

Liverpool have long been linked with a move for Werner. Jurgen Klopp is believed to be a big fan of his countryman. Bild reported Klopp was ready to sanction a £87 million move for the player back in March, only for the Liverpool Echo to insist Werner was not on a list of targets for this summer.

His performances at the World Cup are hardly going to change that.

Liverpool fans on Twitter certainly don’t see what all the fuss is about and would rather see Werner left be. Apart from some, who think now might be the perfect time to strike and sign Werner at a lower price.

It seems unlikely Werner will be at Liverpool next season and, based on the World Cup, that’s probably for the best right now…
