Werner getting inspiration from Chelsea legend Drogba


Chelsea striker Timo Werner says he’s taking inspiration from club legend Didier Drogba.

Drogba, after a slow start, went on to become a firm favourite with Chelsea fans, and Werner is hoping to do the same.

“A lot of good strikers come to the Premier League and take one year to settle down and adapt,” he told BBC Sport.

“I think my form is going up and getting better and better. Maybe this year is not the year of goal scoring for Timo but at the end I will reflect on the season.

“I have learned a lot. I know exactly the teams we play against, how they play.”

Werner is confident Blues boss and fellow countryman Thomas Tuchel can help him re-discover his best form.

The 24-year-old netted 28 times in 34 Bundesliga appearances for RB Leipzig last season.

“I can talk to him very easily,” Werner said of Tuchel, who succeeded Frank Lampard in January.

“When he screams on the pitch, no problem for me. I need types of managers who scream at me. It gives me more power.”
