Chelsea misfiring forward determined to prove his worth at Stamford Bridge.
, considered as one of the most prolific forwards in Europe, joinedChelsea
in summer of 2020 with fans expecting high quality performances from the German international.
However, a goal drought followed Werner into London, with the 25-year-old finding back of the net in only 12 occasions.
Werner, however, is ready to move past last season’s unpleasant experience and is determined to prove his worth and live up to expectations in the rest of his journey at Stamford Bridge.
“In terms of scoring and missing chances, it was the worst season, but in the end I still have 27 goal contributions,”
Werner toldThe Telegraph
"I think I’m the first in our team for that, so it was not everything bad and I don’t think about leaving the club this year, for sure not, and also for the next year because I think we have a very good team and I hope to come back to scoring and that I can do everything that’s expected of me.
"I think a lot of people’s expectations for me, outside the club but also inside the club, were very high because of my goalscoring record.
"I also assisted many goals last year in my old club, but I think the main reason why they brought me here in the club is to score and maybe at the end 12 goals and six goals in the Premier League, that’s not good enough.
"You have to say that I have 12 goals and 15 assists or something like that in every competition and 27 goal contributions, that’s not so bad in what’s maybe my unluckiest season, maybe my worst season I’ve had for many years. If I’m scoring next season, hopefully, maybe people will become happier with me."
