Hasenhuttl: “You have to adapt your game” to get the best out of Timo Werner

Everyone seems to be offering an opinion on the Timo Werner situation, but there are a few select individuals who are certainly more qualified to talk on it than others.

One of those is current Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl, who signed Timo Werner for RB Leipzig when he was the boss there.

Chelsea are also looking to sign a top class new centre back this summer, find out who is on the shortlist HERE!

Many believe that to get the best out of Werner you need to play him to his strengths, which as a common rule is not on the wings, or some argue even as a loan striker.

The bottom line is he is struggling at Chelsea right now, and missing a number of easy chances to score goals. His confidence looks gone, but there could be things that Frank Lampard could do to help out, and Hasenhuttl believes you have to adapt your game to get the best out of Werner.

It’s a tough debate right now, but these words [quoted by The Daily Mail] are wise to take onboard…

“I know Timo very well and I have seen him in situations where he was not good.

“Most of the time when I have seen this is because of the reason that the game doesn’t fit to him. The team didn’t play in the way he can bring his best on the pitch, I think.

“He is definitely a player where you have to adapt your game on him. If you do this, he will give you everything you need from a striker.

“But therefore, he has some qualities you really have to focus on. The good thing for him, I think at Leipzig when I was there, is we concentrated completely on his qualities.

“With our quick transitions after winning the ball, it was perfect for our game. Also when he was with Julian [Nagelsmann], he was also scoring a lot of goals.

“But yeah, you really need to bring him into his best position so he can bring his strength on the pitch and then for me, he is one of the best strikers in Europe.”
