RB Leipzig admit they are “worried” about the health of striker Timo Werner.
Werner attracted attention when he asked to be substituted in the first half of a Champions League game against Besiktas last week due to the noise generated by the home fans.
Leipzig stated that the player was suffering from “breathing and circulation problems”, and he did not feature in their victory over Koln in the Bundesliga at the weekend.
The club’s director of sports Ralf Rangnick has opened up on the situation.
“We are worried about him. That’s obvious. It was an unusual situation in Istanbul,” Rangnick told Kicker.
“And after having the same symptoms again on Friday, he has to assume that it is a matter of being accepted and being looked after.
“It’s about finding out the connections. It makes little sense to speculate. We have to get to the bottom of the matter together and then find the right measures.
“It makes no sense for me to send him to the national team, as long as the diagnosis is not yet finished.”
