In the midst of a revival for Chelsea, the club’s new striker, Timo Werner still hasn’t “made peace” with his goal drought. Regarding that, the new coach Thomas Tuchel finally opened his voice.
Since the middle of last week, Chelsea have worked under the direction of new manager Thomas Tuchel who replaced Frank Lampard.
Had failed to win in their inaugural match against Wolverhampton, but the Blues successfully won over Burnley with a score of 2-0 last weekend. Each goal was scored by Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.
Chelsea’s victory is indeed important, but the public is again talking about the problem of Timo Werner, where the new Blues striker has yet to end his goal drought.
For information, the German player has only scored one goal in the last 18 matches in all competitions for Chelsea. Of course that’s a very small amount for a striker who is expected to score a lot of goals.
Regarding this, Thomas Tuchel, who is also from Germany, finally opened his voice.
According to the tactician, it is very natural for a striker to experience such momentum, including Timo Werner who is still young, and it is not easy to go through such a famine.
“He really tried, he did everything. You can see that, just like any striker in the world, they are sensitive and only goals can help.”
“If they fail to score at a certain time frame then the case is the same, it’s not just Timo, it happens to all strikers in the world.” said Tuchel to the London Football.
However, Tuchel did not mind this because from his eyes, Timo Werner was still working hard to help the team win and that was the most important thing.
“As long as he has an impact on the match, works hard like today, we will continue to support him,”
“We also missed a number of opportunities to use his abilities on the counter attack, which is his best strength, his speed is incredible.” Said the coach.
In essence, this situation is not a problem for Chelsea or for Timo Werner himself.
“It’s not a big deal, maybe he just needs to find an easy goal to get the rest,” he concluded.
