Striker Timo Werner admits he is more suited to the style of play that Hansi Flick is building for Germany than Thomas Tuchel’s system at Chelsea. “As a striker, I always want to score. Things didn’t go as I wanted at Chelsea. So it was great to have Germany under Hansi Flick. I really enjoy playing, wherever I play. “, Werner said after a friendly against Israel 2-0 on March 26.
Werner implicitly criticized Tuchel’s tactics
Werner kicked in Germany’s 3-4-2-1 formation in a friendly match at Rhein-Neckar-Arena, Hoffenheim’s home ground. He buffered his heart to set the score 2-0 at the end of the first half, helping Germany extend the winning streak under Hansi Flick to eight matches.
This is the sixth goal in Werner’s last six matches for Germany . That form is in stark contrast to at Chelsea, where he has been dead for the last eight Premier League matches. “There is a difference in the style of play between Chelsea and Germany,” Werner explained. “Perhaps the style of play in Germany suits me better. Here, there is always a chance to score, and it is possible to score. I am very comfortable when I join the German national team.”
Previously, another Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku, also publicly criticized the way coach Tuchel’s tactics were built, and admitted to being unhappy at Stamford Bridge, in an interview with Sky Sports Italy at the end of 2021.
Since the beginning of the season, the Belgian striker has only scored 12 goals in 34 matches in all competitions, and lost his official position to Havertz. Last season, Lukaku made a big contribution to helping Inter win the championship for the first time in 11 years, with 24 goals and 11 assists, thereby winning the title of Best Player of the Season by the players playing in the tournament.
Werner is one of the blockbusters in the summer of 2020 spending more than 200 million USD of Chelsea, and is expected to solve the problem on the club’s attack. “The Blues” spent $ 59 million when watching Werner experience the most sublime season of his career, with 32 goals, 13 assists in 43 matches with RB Leipzig in all competitions in the 2019-2020 season.
But at Chelsea , Werner had difficulty finding the net, having only scored 12 goals in his first season. This season, he scored seven goals in 28 matches, including only one in the Premier League. The 26-year-old striker is also often mocked by fans for missing delicious situations. Coach Thomas Tuchel , therefore, many times had to push Havertz to the kicker.
According to British newspaper Sportmail , Werner may be liquidated by Chelsea in the summer transfer window of 2022. Dortmund is said to want to bring the German striker back to the Bundesliga. The biggest return of this financial deal, when Werner earned a season salary of 17.5 million USD at Chelsea, while captain Marco Reus of Dortmund received just over 13 million USD per season.
