The German forward added his name to the scoreboard in his first game after leaving Chelsea.

Timo Werner scored in his second debut for RB Leipzig, days after ending his unsuccessful spell at Chelsea.

The goal came in the 35th minute of RB Leipzig’s 2-2 draw against Koln on Saturday. The German forward latched onto Benjamin Henrichs’ assist before targeting the net from long range.

The keeper tried to collect the ball with a simple reaction, but his shocking blunder saw Werner celebrating his second debut goal at Leipzig.

Werner left Chelsea to return to Leipzig on a €30m deal earlier this week. 

In his first spell with Die Roten Bullen, the German international scored 90 goals and provided 40 assists in his 156 appearances.

Werner’s performances secured him a move to Chelsea, where he failed to maintain his form. 

The former Stuttgart star scored only 23 goals in his 89 games for the Blues, returning to Leipzig after a two-year spell at Stamford Bridge.

Leipzig have started the season with two draws against Stuttgart and Koln. Werner and co will be back in action next weekend when they face Union Berlin in their next Bundesliga game.
