With only one inconsequential game left in the season, Chelsea striker Timo Werner has already shifted his focus to the Euros. Speaking to Eurosport, the former RB Leipzig man spoke about the return of Thomas Muller after a two-year hiatus, and what the Bayern Munich man could offer to offer to the team at this stage of his career.
“If someone like Thomas comes out of the Bundesliga with over 20 assists, my hope is of course that he’ll give me a goal one time or another at the European Championships,” said Werner.
Bad jokes aside, his assists are one of the main reasons Muller was brought back into the team. You can’t just ignore the man who’s been Europe’s top provider for the last two years.
Meanwhile, Timo is also looking forward to Hansi Flick taking over at the DFB. “He’s a very nice person and really a great coach. Even if I haven’t played in his team before, he always had encouraging words for me,” said Werner to Sport1.
“You can’t beat what he achieved at FC Bayern”, added the 25-year-old. “In my opinion he is the perfect man for the DFB, because his charisma and attitude also have a certain resemblance to Joachim Löw. Hansi Flick can safely continue on this track that the current national coach has set and fill it with his own ideas. He is the perfect choice.”
