I could have played better: Timo Werner open up on reasons he has been struggling at Chelsea after scoring 2goals for Germany

Timo Werner: ‘If I’d think too much about the critics, I couldn’t have played’

“It has to roll off you, because if I had been thinking too much about the days, then I would not have been able to play today,” Timo Werner said about how he deals with the criticism he gets.

“At some point the barrel will be full. I know what I can do and so I go into every game with that mindset.”

The forward also took the opportunity to show his appreciation towards Germany manager Hansi Flick who continues to trust him.

“He’s very good for me. If a coach likes you and relies on you, it helps every player,” Timo added.

“As a striker, I especially need to be trusted externally. I’m trying to pay it back and I hope that I can keep giving it back.”

Werner repaid the trust on Monday night by scoring twice against North Macedonia. He also scored in each of Germany’s three games in the September international break.

At Chelsea, however, he’s only scored twice in eight games across all competitions
