Chelsea and Germany striker Timo Werner has continued to endure a difficult time on the pitch whether he is playing for his club or his country’s national team. The striker was once regarded as one of the best attackers in the world when he was ad German Bundesliga outfit, RB Leipzig, before sealing a switch to English Premier League side Chelsea.
Under former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard, the man who was the one who brought the Germany international star to Stamford Bridge, Werner slowly went off the grid in terms of putting in great performances and scoring goals.
A lot of people believe that his inability to score goals played a huge part in getting Lampard sacked because the club were failing to win games. Had Werner been scoring goals with the opportunities he was getting, the story could have had a different twist, and the player himself admitted to it.
Werner said last month that he feels a bit responsible for Lampard losing his job at Chelsea because the former manager could have probably lasted longer if he helped score goals that would help them win games.
In Germany’s most recent game against North Macedonia, Werner missed a glorious chance to hand his country the lead when the scoreline was still at 1-1. His missed chance resulted in the Macedonians scoring through their own chance and the match ended up with a 2-1 scoreline, with the Germans ending up on the losing side.
After the match, many questioned Werner’s selection for the Germany team and his role in the squad may be under threat.
