Star announces why he has completed summer Chelsea transfer deal!

Timo Werner has blamed Thomas Tuchel’s tactics as the reason why things didn’t work out at Chelsea.

The German arrived at Stamford Bridge with a lot of expectations to develop into one of the very best strikers in world football – but despite scoring 23 goals for the club in 39 appearances – he failed to live up to the hype

And after a few days of rumours and speculation – Werner re-joined RB Leipzig, where he scored 95 goals in 159 games in all competitions, on a contract until 2026 and will wear the No 11 shirt.

Werner wanted to return to his old club and get regular game time to secure a starting spot in Hansi Flick’s Germany squad at the World Cup in November

Now – the German striker has opened up and revealed why he made the decision to pack his bags and leave the club- and he claims Tuchel’s strategy didn’t compliment his style of play.

He said: “Of course, I had great success at Chelsea, but the fun got a bit lost in the end because I didn’t play regularly anymore.

“I think the coach’s system of play didn’t suit me perfectly.

“That’s why it was clear to me that I wanted to take a new step. I’m at an age where I want to play as much as I can.”
