 Exclusive: Timo Werner opens up on ‘very good’ relationship with Hakim Ziyech as striker makes admission on Chelsea’s expectations of him


Timo Werner admits Chelsea forked out £48million to see him score goals but insists he’s happy to help the team out in many ways.

The striker has struggled to find the net in his first season in England, scoring just ten goals in 42 appearances for the Blues.

However, Werner had a huge hand in Chelsea’s FA Cup triumph over Manchester City on Saturday as he provided the assist for Hakim Ziyech, who tapped into an empty net.

The Germany international was a livewire at Wembley despite not getting on the scoresheet but there’s more to his game than getting goals.

After the match, Werner told talkSPORT: “When you don’t score you have to help the team with other things and at the moment I’m helping the team with assists.

“That’s not my main target, they didn’t buy me to assist, but I can help today with a good assist to win the game so I’m very happy with that.

“I’m not the type of guy who only wants to score, I want to win the games and when I assist and help the team like this it’s also very, very good.”

Werner and Ziyech caused Man City’s sluggish defence all sorts of problems and the 25-year-old believes he has a good relationship with the Moroccan and the other Chelsea attackers.

He added: “It was nearly exactly the same goal as it was against Atletico, that works very well.

“We had the same one in the first half but it was offside but yeah I think all the offensive players have a good relationship. It was also a very good pass from Mason.

“We have a good mix between guys who can come into the ball but also go behind the lines so the relationship with Hakim but also all the others is very good.”
