van der Vaart believes Tuchel should bench Werner

Thu 15 April 2021 | 16:28

Former Dutch international backed former Ajax player to become a regular starter for Chelsea.

When

Chelsea

signed

Timo Werner

, everyone expected him to become one of the best goal-scorers in the Premier League but this season has not been so successful for the German striker. Rafael van der Vaart, the Dutch and former Tottenham Hotspur player claims that Tuchel should use

Ziyech

more instead of playing Werner Regularly.

The former Tottenham and Real Madrid midfielder told

Ziggo Sport

, when asked why he would pick Ziyech for Chelsea and whether it was just because he knows the player from his time at Ajax:

"No, it's because he's the best option.

"He is always able to provide for the striker and Giroud needs guys like him. Mount plays in exactly the same way, so that's why I would pick him too.

"Timo Werner is super fast, and maybe that is something good to have in an away game when Chelsea are under pressure, but all he does is put his head down and run, which leads to nothing.

"Mount is a terrific footballer, and I think he can get even better as he gains some power, but Werner is truly a blind horse. He already shown that's what he's like when he played in Germany - and he's doing it again now."
