Rio Ferdinand also predicted that Timo Werner "will bang" next season despite not performing upto his standards this year. He said: "Werner will bang. Werner will bang next year.

He's just come in, he's still got over 10 goals, he's still got over 10 assists by the way. The most goal involvements at the club."
