New Chelsea manager, Tuchel reveals plan for Werner

Chelsea’s new manager, Thomas Tuchel, has promised to get the best out of Timo Werner smiling again.

Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard, who was fired this week, after the Blues fell from first to 10th place.

The Premier League side beat many of Europe’s top clubs to activate Werner’s release clause in the summer and sign him for £47.5 million

The poor run has seen goals dry up for their forwards, especially Werner, who is currently on an 11-game goal drought in the Premier League.

Many predict the 24-year-old will have a resurgence under his compatriot and Tuchel is eager to work with the former RB Leipzig star, who was an unused substitute in Tuchel’s first match.

“Why I did not use him on Wednesday, I see his face is a bit closed and the weight is on his shoulders,” Tuchel told reporters about his team selection in the 0-0 draw with Wolves on Wednesday.

“He cares a lot and that shows he has a fantastic character. Sometimes as a striker, it does not help if you care a lot. Sometimes as a striker, it’s better to not care at all. But he’s not that guy. He cares and he’s not happy with himself and with the way things went lately.

“Right now it’s important to rebuild his trust in himself and to find a smile on his face and stop doubting too much. It’s my job to do this, to help him with this and then to find also a position where we can use his strengths.”
