Timo Werner was unable to replicate the goal-scoring form that secured him a move to Chelsea from RB Leipzig during the previous summer transfer window.
Several of his former coaches have since spoken out about the German striker, suggesting directions for Frank Lampard and now Thomas Tuchel to get something out of the forward.
“For a long time, Timo was Leipzig’s undisputed star striker, scoring several goals and having a significant impact on the club’s success. And when he made a meterless in training, he still played there.”
“At Chelsea, he is one of several stars who must work together. “Thomas Tuchel will undoubtedly inform him that he is working on those things,” RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann said.
Meanwhile, Southampton and former Leipzig manager Ralph Hasenhuttl believe Werner is a player on whom the team can concentrate to get the most out of him.
“He is unquestionably a player who needs you to adjust your game to him. If you do so, he will provide you with all you need in a striker. But he does have some attributes on which you should concentrate,” the Austrian coach explained.
“The good thing for him, I suppose, is that when I was in Leipzig, we focused entirely on his qualities.”
Werner has often been used in a wider capacity at Chelsea, allowing Tammy Abraham or Olivier Giroud to play in the central strike spot.
Ahead of Chelsea’s trip to Anfield, where Werner could be seen in a wider position once more, the German international has spoken candidly about his challenges since joining Stamford Bridge.
When asked about his target drought, the attacker acknowledged that he was having trouble dealing with it.
Werner told the BBC, “It was difficult for me because I wanted to support the team. It’s in my blood to score goals; I’m a scorer.”
When asked about the target drought, he said, “I never had it in my career before.”
