Tuchel: Werner is angry now, but must put his chin up for future games

Wed 28 April 2021 | 9:27

The Chelsea forward underwent another miss in his side’s 1-1 draw against Real Madrid and the Blues boss revealed the striker is not pleased with himself.

Thomas Tuchel

advised

Timo Werner

to stop crying over his poor form when it comes to goals in this crucial time.

The Germany international has been trying to get back on a form that saw him meet the back of the net 28 times in 34 Bundesliga games for RB Leipzig in the 2019-20 season since moving to Stamford Bridge on a £47.5million transfer fee.

The 25-year-old found the net in

Chelsea

's crucial 1-0 victory over

West Ham

on Saturday, which was his sixth in 31

Premier League

games.

His magic in front of goal has come back in their 1-1 draw with

Real Madrid

in the Champions League semi-final as he almost netted a goal past Thibaut Courtois.

His four shots were more than the other members of the squad, with two of them being on target and one blocked.

"

He missed a big one at West Ham, now he missed another big one here,"

Tuchel said after Karim Benzema’s goal canceled out Chelsea’s lead which was courtesy of Christian Pulisic’s goal.

"That does not help, but it also does not help to cry about it or to regret it all the time.

"It's like this. There are millions of people who have harder things to deal with than chances that you miss.

"This is the good thing about sports. Nobody cares tomorrow. Today we were sad, we were angry in the moment.

"This is normal. He is angry, he is maybe disappointed. Tomorrow he has a free day and then the next day he has to put his chin up."

Werner’s work rate has been important to Tuchel and he has contributed eight assists in his name this season.

"

He is a professional guy; he is a top guy. He works hard, he is in the positions and from there on we go,"

Tuchel added.

"We will never stop pushing, we will never stop believing. I have the feeling that everybody accepts the situation as it is.

"As a striker it is easy – you score the next game and nobody speaks."
