Timo Werner has admitted that Germany boss Hansi Flick’s “style of play” suits him better than Thomas Tuchel’s at Chelsea.
Werner joined Chelsea from RB Leipzig for a reported £47m fee in 2020 but has struggled during his time at Stamford Bridge.
He only scored six goals in 35 Premier League games last season and has been equally poor in front of goal this term, netting once in 14 league appearances.
The 26-year-old scored, however, as Germany picked up a routine 2-0 victory against Israel on Saturday evening.
Following the match, Timo Werner said that his Chelsea career is not going the ‘way he’d like’, whilst noting that he feels “very comfortable” in Flick’s Germany system.
“I’m a striker and always want to score,” Werner said (quotes via the Daily Mail). “Things aren’t going the way I’d like at Chelsea, so it’s all the better that things are going well here under Hansi Flick.
“I really enjoy playing football, no matter where I’m playing. There are differences in the style of play between football at Chelsea and here.
“Maybe the one at the national team suits me better. Here, I always have scoring chances, I can score goals. I feel very comfortable here.”
