Werner has been at the heart of Leipzig’s success in Europe this season, racking up four goals and two assists throughout his campaign, but the 24-year-old forward will have no part in competition when competition resumes in August.
The striker’s contract with Chelsea officially begins on July 1, which makes him ineligible for the next mini-tournament in Portugal.
The Blues will also not be able to select the German international in what seems to be their last match in the Champions League this season.
Frank Lampard’s team was beaten 3-0 at home against Bayern Munich in the first leg of their last 16 encounter, and their hopes in competition appear to be dashed.
“Of course, it hurts me that I can’t help Leipzig play in the Champions League. But I have been a Chelsea player since July 1 and I am now paid by Chelsea, ” said Werner Sports buzzer.
“It was clear that all parties – Chelsea, RB and my team – should and should resolve this.
“Of course, I tried to stay away from the Champions League record as much as I could because it was clear that I should be injured on one side.
“That’s why my agent finally accepted him with the clubs.”
Werner added: “I am still connected to Leipzig and RB.
“I’m going to sit in front of the television during the quarter-finals and keep my fingers crossed.
“Maybe I can even be there in Lisbon.”
Roberto Di Matteo supported Werner to storm English football upon his arrival at Chelsea and says he tried twice to sign the attacker.
“When I was at Schalke, he was in Stuttgart and he had just staged himself,” said the former Chelsea midfielder and manager.
“During the second part of the season, before I left, I planned with my sports director.
“I said I wanted to sign this guy, he’s good. He was young, fast, technically good. I said “can’t we sign this boy Timo”.
“We didn’t do it at the end, then I resigned, etc. Then I went to Villa. Stuttgart, the following season, they were relegated, so I asked to sign it again, but Leipzig then signed it.
He added: “ I’m a big fan of him and he has grown very, very well too.
“He’s a goalscorer, he scores goals, so he can guarantee a certain number of goals for the team, which is great, and he’s also very fast, he’s fast.”
