Ex-Werner boss opens up and has this very exciting message for expectant Chelsea fans

Former boss Ralph Hassenhutl believes it is only a matter of time before Chelsea forward Timo Werner begins to shine.

Werner had an amazing season last year at RB and netted an impressive 34-goals for the German outfit, and his performances meant that Chelsea paid £54 million to nail down his services ahead of the transfer window.

But despite putting in some very good performances for Chelsea, he has not found his feet just yet and there is already alot of criticism about his inability to find the back of the net, something Chelsea are paying him to do.

But Hasenhuttl, who worked with Werner in Leipzig before taking on the Southampton job, has full faith that his former charge will soon start finding the net: “I have worked with a lot players and he is one of the quickest. He is really hard to defend against,’ the manager told reporters ahead of the Saints’ weekend clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

“He is getting a more complete striker now and is learning a lot. He is a fantastic signing for Chelsea and he is only happy when he scores, so I hope he is unhappy after the game. ‘They haven’t seen the best of him yet, at Chelsea, in his first games. He has only scored one goal, I think, in the [Carabao] cup.

“It would be a mistake to reduce Chelsea to just Timo, though. They have plenty of other good players in the squad.

“I hope I get to speak to him but not to congratulate him on a goal. I know this player very well. I had two fantastic years with him.

“We brought him in from Stuttgart for small money if you want. ‘We knew the game that we played at Leipzig was perfect for him but he also showed development with the ball last year.

“He was fantastic for me in his first year and scored plenty of goals.”

Werner is just adapting to the quality of the Premier League and getting used to his surroundings, he will need time, especially as Chelsea are also getting used to the other new signings that arrived in the summer.
