‘Werner was working like a dog.’ Thomas Tuchel.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is happy to see Timo Werner working non-stop for his club. Werner has found goals difficult to come by in his season at Chelsea but his work rate has pleased the former PSG coach.
It is now evident that Werner’s contribution cannot solely be tied to how many times he has scored.
Following Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat of Manchester City in the Premier League Tuchel while speaking to BBC Sport said:
“In the last week he’s really adapted well to the situations.
“The way he works he’s relentless. He really wants it and I am very happy with his performance today.

“Werner was working like a dog, he was really working hard. He gave them a hard time with his runs.”
“I think the second half was a fantastic response to the last five minutes of the first half where we almost lost it all,” he said to the BBC.
” To me it was a clear 0-0 half but suddenly we did one decisive mistake and maybe the match becomes out of reach at half-time.
“With every minute we gained confidence and quality. We got better and better. It was a tough battle and once we got the equalizer we never stopped attacking. [The winning goal] was a huge reward.
Chelsea will now hope they can record a third back-to-back win over City in the upcoming Champions League final, which will be played on May 29.
