Tony Cascarino, a former Chelsea striker, has told Timo Werner that unless he improves quickly, he would be’moved on’ by the club following manager Thomas Tuchel’s comments about him.
Tuchel was ecstatic. Werner scored in Chelsea’s 3-1 Premier League win over Southampton on Sunday, but later admitted that his game might be better.
Cascarino, on the other hand, believes Tuchel’s words were “telling” and has told Werner that until he improves his finishing, Chelsea will move him.
Werner, 25, has had a tumultuous time at Chelsea after coming for £47.5 million from RB Leipzig.
“Thomas Tuchel’s comment after Timo Werner’s goal against Southampton that there were “a lot of things to improve” for him was telling,” Cascarino told The Times.
“In the past, Chelsea fans have been devoted to misfiring center forwards like Andriy Shevchenko and Fernando Torres, and the same has been true of Werner, but strikers at large clubs can’t simply be OK.
“The German must not continue to waste so many big chances, or the club will move him on, as it did with Shevchenko and Torres.”
