Timo Werner’s debut season at Chelsea will go down as a success – he scored some goals, grabbed some assists and ended up winning a Champions League title.
But it could all have been so different. He missed so many easy chances and looked totally lost at times, and with a less successful ending, it would have been easy to call his season a failure.
Jerome Boateng, who knows Werner well from national team duty together, is sure that won’t be a problem in the future.
In quotes picked up by Football365, Boateng explained that:
“Timo has changed country, club, playing in a new league. It is not so easy.
“Nonetheless, he scored his goals, provided assists, was present, went through a hollow and came out and now he’s the Champions League winner.
“For me it has been a positive season with the usual ups and downs. It makes him bigger and stronger and he learns from it.”
Werner has the chance to turn the corner at the Euros starting this weekend, with plenty of chances for him to get his head right in front of goal hopefully coming up.
He’s had his fair share of misses for Germany too recently, so let’s hope this summer’s tournament is a happy one for him. We will need him firing again next season if we’re to match this campaign’s successes.
