“I couldn’t play if I listened” – Chelsea forward Timo Werner opens up about critique after rediscovering best form with Germany – ‘I couldn’t play if I listened’



Timo Werner

Chelsea forward Timo Werner has confessed he’d be unfit to play football if he looked at the criticism he received from his unbelievers.

25-year-old Timo Werner has been in fine form for Germany in recent times and hit a superb double as they smacked North Macedonia 4-0 to become the first team to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar next year.

It was his fifth goal in as many games for his nation and a testament to the work of new boss Hansi Flick for getting the best out of him once more.

However, Timo Werner’s £53million move to Stamford Bridge from RB Leipzig has been nowhere near as efficient as many expected.

He’s scored just 14 times in 60 appearances for the Blues, though he has also created 16 assists, and many have inscribed him a ‘flop’ even though he played a pivotal role in their Champions League victory last season.

Werner, however, prefers to ignore his haters as he disclosed he wouldn’t play if he read the words of his faultfinders.

After the Germany victory, he said: “It has to roll off you, because if I had been thinking too much about the days, then I would not have been able to play today.

“At some point, the barrel will be full. I know what I can do and so I go into every game with that mindset.”

Werner failed to find the net for Germany in the 2-1 win over Romania on Friday, but the former RB Leipzig man has been very positive for the way Flick has helped him.

“He’s very good for me. If a coach likes you and relies on you, it helps every player,” said Werner.
