Timo Werner’s Parents

Every journey requires supporters and having a supportive family who push you towards your goals is an important key which cheers you up and lights up a spark of hope within you.

For the start, the first

fact about Timo Werner

that you may want to know is that his father, Günther Schuh, was also a footballer. Well more precisely, an amateur footballer. He used to play for Stuttgarter Kickers and 07 Ludwigsburg. After a while, Schuh became a coach and when he saw his son’s intense interest in football, encouraged him to follow the path he couldn’t take for so long. Also as Timo himself once mentioned in an interview, when he was a child he used to go running up the mountains with his father as a matter of practicing and improving his physical skills. He said that his father would take everything seriously and pass him the ball to his right foot, so he could try to score a goal and then together, father and son would work on Timo’s techniques. Maybe that’s the reason behind the fact about Timo Werner being a right footed.

Overall,

Timo Werner’s childhood

includes a lot of fun, practicing, playing and getting ready to become a worldwide known pro footballer.

At first Timo would do anything to impress his father, but after years of trying and practing it became a habit, something that taught him the art of enduring and being patient. It taught him how to fight for what he genuinely wants.

On the other hand, Sabine Werner, Timo’s mother, was also very enthusiastic about her son’s dreams. And since Timo was the only child in the family, it was normal that concerns would rise up and they would focus on him strictly and try their best to help and support their son to get through everything and pass any obstacle until he finds what he considers as a dream.

Also another

fact about Timo Werner

that you might wonder about is his last name which he has taken from his mother; although

Timo Werner’s parents

are living together, they were never legally married. So instead, Timo just took his mother’s last name, and that’s why we all identify him as a Werner.

He once talked about the moral values that his family taught him, the habits that honestly rooted in him ever since childhood and made him to be the person he is today. These values are 1. Say no to hurting anyone 2. Respect everyone equally 3. Offer your hand in case anyone’s in need of it 4. Be responsible for whatever you do in life as well as the people around you 5. Live with the art of sharing

And indeed he has learned his lessons carefully and thoroughly, because we know this fact about Timo Werner, how humble and gentle he is and what a good soul he’s got.

Timo Werner’s Professionl Career

He was 6 years old when he first joined TSV Steinhaldenfeld and that’s where his youth career began. Later on, he left TSV Steinhaldenfeld for

VfB Stuttgart football club

and stayed with the team for 4 more years after his professional career had started. He made 95 league appearances and scored 13 goals for the club, for which he became the youngest player who has ever made more than 50 Bundesliga appearances.

In 2010, while playing in the Germany U15, Timo scored a hat-trick in his debut against

Poland

. Even right from the beginning, he was absolutely remarkable and outstanding. He was determined to make a link between his life and success.

In March 2018, he even beat his previous record and became the youngest player in

Bundesliga

history who has made 150 top-flight appearances. Back then he was only 22.

Werner had been playing for Germany youth level from 2010 up to 2017. He was a part of U15, U16, U17, U19 and U21 teams. There were generally 48 matches in which Timo scored 34 goals. At last he joined

Germany national football club

in 2017. He played for his country in the 2018 World Cup qualification game against

Azerbaijan

.

After VfB Stuttgart was relegated, Werner joined

RB Leipzig

in 2016. For Timo, it was indeed a step towards victory. He succeeded so fast, almost overnight. He was announced as the team’s highest goal-scorer and with his contribution, RB Leipzig got qualified to play in the UEFA Champions League.

At RB Leipzig’s Champions League game in 2017, Werner had been substituted while he was playing along with his team against

Besiktas

. This unfortunate event occurred due to air circulation and breathing problem which is caused by his excess noise. He tried to take control of the whole situation, trying every single way that could possibly help him keep on playing. Even covering his ears or using earplugs didn’t help him and finally he had to go and couldn’t continue playing the rest of the game.

This young wild striker is currently playing for one of the most wonderful clubs in football history along with so many of the greatest teammates. He signed his contract with

Chelsea F.C.

in 2020 which is going to expire in 2025. Timo was named as the current best midfielder in Chelsea F.C. He is said to be the number 213 among all the top European players ever.

Timo Werner's current net worth

is estimated to be around $29 million.

Timo Werner’s Education

Timo Werner once said that his mother really insisted he finishes school and actually, he did so. He added the fact that he never thought about otherwise himself, he wanted to graduate and then chase his dreams, which obviously means playing football professionally. He also said that he’s somehow proud of himself for managing both at the same time.

However in high school, he wasn’t as brilliant as in a stadium playing football. He was perfectly normal and adequate, but because of football commitments, he would most of the times skip his classes. As a matter of fact, he signed his contract with

VfB Stuttgart football club

one year before finishing school.

Well if you’re thinking about the same thing, then it needs to be noted: not all the young players are capable of doing both at the same time!

During that period in 2013 he received the Fritz Walter gold medal, which was a result of playing in the U17 category. This medal is annually given to the potentially talented and young players by the German Football Association. And then again two years later, in 2015, he won the silver medal for playing in the U19 category.
