TIMO WERNER has achieved a fairy tale ending in Germany after becoming RB Leipzig’s ALL-TIME top goal scorer with a double against Augsburg.
The 24-year-old played his final Bundesliga game before sealing a £53million move to Chelsea this summer.
The German took less than 30 minutes to make history after he sprung the offside trap to round keeper Tomas Koubek and overtake Daniel Frahn’s record.

But Werner’s new side Chelsea face an uphill task after losing 3-0 to Bayern Munich in the first leg of their tie at Stamford Bridge.
