Chelsea boss says that Timo Werner should be happy with his situation at the club.

Timo Werner

has been experiencing a hard time since he arrived at Stamford Bridge, and his struggles have made the media talk about his possible transfer soon. But the Blues boss

Thomas Tuchel

thinks that it’s not wise to assume that the Germany international is going to leave



"Stop reading, stop reading, what do you read? Read a book,"

the German coach replied when asked about reports of Werner's unhappiness


"There is no book about Timo Werner. So read a book."

Werner sat on the bench twice this month and came off the bench against Everton. However, Tuchel insists that the Germany international shouldn’t be frustrated with his situation as he has started important games for the Blues.

"For Timo, I think he has no reason now to be frustrated because he had an amazing match against Liverpool, maybe his best match since I arrived,"

he added


"Then he had a good match against Everton, with a lot of chances to score, which he normally is clinical enough and strong enough. He did not score. Okay, this sticks in a situation like this. This can affect his self confidence, of course, but what does it help?

"The clear advice from us is don’t focus on the result, focus on the process, get your decision-making right, get your technique right, make good decisions, for the decision take the right technique and the ball will do the rest.”

Tuchel’s men will face Atletico Madrid in their next Champions League clash as they have defeated the Spanish side in the first leg of the UCL round of 16 in Madrid. The Blues sit fourth in the Premier League, 20 points away from the leaders.
