Timo Werner, a striker for Chelsea and Germany, has stated that he feels more at ease representing his country than when he plays for the Blues.
Since joining Chelsea from RB Leipzig in 2020, the 26-year-old striker has fallen short of expectations.
Werner has struggled to replicate his finest form at the Premier League club and has come in for a lot of flak when he hasn’t scored.
However, he and Chelsea teammate Kai Havertz both scored in Germany’s 2-0 win over Israel on Saturday.
What did Werner Say?
“I’m a striker who is always looking to score goals. Things at Chelsea aren’t going as well as I’d want, so it’s all the more fortunate that things are going well here under Hansi Flick “After the final whistle, Werner spoke with reporters.
“I have a lot of fun playing football, no matter where I am. Football at Chelsea differs from football here in terms of style of play.
“Perhaps the one with the national team is a better fit for me.
“I always have scoring opportunities here, and I can score goals. I’m at ease in this environment.”
Romelu Lukaku, on the other hand, made a similar statement a while ago and was warned by Chelsea FC, as well as receiving a lot of anger from Chelsea fans on social media – which he later apologized for.
Werner’s statement has yet to pique that ginger’s interest, or perhaps the fans don’t care what Timo Werner says because he scarcely contributes to the club’s performance.
So, what’s next?
When Werner arrived at Chelsea from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2020, he was regarded as one of Europe’s most dangerous strikers, scoring 34 goals in 45 games across all competitions during his final season in Germany.
However, his strike percentage dropped considerably during his first season in England, and he has made little progress this season, with only seven strikes in 28 appearances.
Now, with the future of Stamford Bridge in limbo with the freezing of owner Roman Abramovich’s assets, Werner could be on his way out, possibly to Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga.
