Thomas Tuchel has laughed off speculation surrounding Timo Werner’s future at Chelsea
Werner was signed by the club during the last summer transfer window after a blistering season over in the Bundesliga in which he netted over 30 goals in all competitions.
We beat off a whole host of clubs to get a transfer deal done, and many were excited to see just what the German could bring to Stamford Bridge, especially as we needed to add a top-class forward to the attack.
However,Werner is enduring a difficult first season at the club following his move from RB Leipzig last summer, as the Germany international has scored just one Premier League goal in 2021 and has not found the net in the Champions League since a group stage match against Rennes in early November.
WHAT HAS TUCHEL SAID?
“Stop reading, stop reading, what do you read? Read a book,” the German coach replied when asked about reports of Werner’s unhappiness.
“There is no book about Timo Werner. So read a book.”
“For Timo, I think he has no reason now to be frustrated because he had an amazing match against Liverpool, maybe his best match since I arrived,” he added.
“Then he had a good match against Everton, with a lot of chances to score, which he normally is clinical enough and strong enough. He did not score. Okay, this sticks in a situation like this. This can affect his self confidence, of course, but what does it help?
“The clear advice from us is don’t focus on the result, focus on the process, get your decision-making right, get your technique right, make good decisions, for the decision take the right technique and the ball will do the rest.
“There is simply no time to reflect on what is going to be in summer or next year. At the moment I don’t see why he should be frustrated. We gave him a little bit of time to breathe against Leeds. It was hard for him to come on, so he was not too much involved in the last 20 minutes because it was not our best game, but right now I don’t see why he should be too frustrated.”
Look we are massively shocked to see that he is being linked with a move away from the club, but we are not expecting him to eave guys, so dont worry!
