‘Werner one of the best & Chelsea are using him wrong’ Lampard sent clear message regarding Chelsea hitman
Chelsea have been told that they have been using Timo Werner wrong, as he is still one of the very best in the game.
After another impressive season over in the Bundesliga last season, in which he netted 34 goal, Chelsea made the big decision to splash some cash and bring the young German to the Premier League to lead their attack.
And Given how prolific Werner had been in his homeland, the 24-year-old was expected to hit the ground running in England, but after a bright start at his new club, the target has been found just once through his last 14 appearances – and that solitary strike came in an FA Cup win over League Two side Morecambe.
But Ralph Hasenhuttl believes the Blues need to start using a potential attacking weapon in his favoured role on a regular basis, he was quoted on Goal: “I know Timo very well and I have seen him in situations where he was not good.
“Most of the time when I have seen this is because of the reason that the game doesn’t fit to him. The team didn’t play in a way where he can bring his best on the pitch, I think.
“He is definitely a player where you have to adapt your game to him. If you do this, he will give you everything you need from a striker.
“But, therefore, he has some qualities you really have to focus on.
“The good thing for him, I think at Leipzig when I was there, is we concentrated completely on his qualities. Our quick transitions after winning the ball, it was perfect for our game.
“Also, when he was with Julian [Nagelsmann], he was also scoring a lot of goals.”
