Chelsea forward Timo Werner has admitted that he is very devastated by the goalless series in the London team.
“Yes, I smile less. In football, a smile and a proper mood are necessary and important because the lack of joy and the inability to get pleasure from football cannot lead me to the old conditions.
You need always to maintain a positive attitude. This is the first step towards the return of old Timo. Of course, behind my rare smile, lots of goalless days and losses are not the best feeling.
The goalless series at Chelsea is the worst period of my career because I did not miss so many goal moments before. Now I am happy that everything is over. “It was very difficult for me without the joy given by the goal,” Sky Sports quoted Werner as saying.
On February 15, in the 24th round of the Premier League, in the match against “Newcastle”, the German scored a goal in the 39th minute and ended a 13-match dry series.
Tuchel: “Werner’s little goal could be Chelsea’s fault”
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has spoken about striker Timo Werner.
“Maybe the fact that Werner cannot score goals is our fault, because” Chelsea “holds the ball for a long time and forces the opponent to put in deep defense, which leaves less space. This is the main problem for Werner.
The main thing is that Timo does not lose faith and continues to work on the team. We work a lot on the team, and there are a few solutions for the team in confined spaces, though not easy.
I see this, and that is why I am patient and calm. “I believe in the potential and character of Timo. I know he can score goals,” Goal.com quoted Tuchel as saying.
This season, Wermer has scored 5 goals and 5 assists in 24 Premier League games.
