“I had one laughing eye and one crying eye” – Timo Werner opens up on Chelsea stint and admits he ‘imagined something more’ at Stamford Bridge

Former Chelsea striker Timo Werner recently opened up about his time at Stamford Bridge, claiming he lost the fun of playing football at times.

Werner returned to the Bundesliga during the summer transfer window and went about his business at RB Leipzig.

In a recent interview with the official website of the German Football Association (via Football.London), the striker opened up about his time at Stamford Bridge. The 26-year-old admitted his experience with the west London team was bittersweet, saying:

“Personally, it wasn’t the best of times. I had imagined something more. I learned a lot, won the Champions League and other trophies. I really enjoyed the two years abroad – and really enjoyed London Eye and a crying eye.”

He added:

“Not everything went so smoothly in Leipzig in the first few weeks, but the football under the new coach suits me very well and prepares me for what is required in the national team.”

The forward also recently opened up about his troubles fitting in with Thomas Tuchel’s tactics, with the former Chelsea manager often leaving Werner on the bench.

The Leipzig sniper had previously explained in the podcast “Einfach mal Luppen”:

“For me, playing football is fun. Of course I was very successful at Chelsea, but in the end I lost a bit of the fun because I didn’t play regularly anymore. I think the coach’s playing system didn’t suit me perfectly. So it was clear to me that I wanted to take a new step.”

He added:

“I’m at an age where I want to play as much as possible. I really associate great successes with Chelsea – the greatest of my career. It will always be a special club for me. I also keep in touch with many of the players on the team.”

Werner has gotten off to a good start on his return to Leipzig, scoring four goals and three assists in nine games in all competitions.
