Timo Werner would have three of the top five worst misses of the season if there was such a thing.Tony Cascarino, a talkSPORT co-host, claims the misfiring German is running out of opportunities to prove his worth at Chelsea after joining for £45 million from RB Leipzig last summer.
Werner has squandered a number of major opportunities this season.Werner has assisted on more goals than any other Chelsea striker this season,
but he is more often than not in the news for the wrong reasons, as a result of a series of conspicuous misses.
He missed a point-blank chance earlier this week to bring Chelsea ahead against Real Madrid in their Champions League semi-final first leg, which ended 1-1 after Karim Benzema equalized Christian Pulisic’s opener.
And Cascarino believes the 25-year-old won’t be interested in seeing his highlight reel anytime soon.
Casc told talkSPORT, “If you asked me to name the top five misses of the season, I would put Timo Werner in three of them.”
Against Real Madrid earlier this week, Werner hit this chance straight at Courtois from six yards.“In front of goal, he’s been pretty bad.
Thibaut Courtois, as in midweek [against Real Madrid], has made a fantastic save in front of goal.
I’m telling you, [Karim] Benzema scores there,” says the coach. I’ve been there as a forward and have missed some incredible opportunities.
Even if a goalkeeper makes an outstanding save, you will be chastised.”Blues coach Tuchel told Werner earlier this week to “put his chin up” and “not whine.
“Tuchel said of Werner, “He missed a major one in West Ham, and now he missed another big one here.”
That doesn’t help, but neither does crying about it or regretting it all the time; it’s the same thing
There are millions of people who have it worse than you do, but the positive thing about sports is that no one cares what happens tomorrow.
“We were sad, we were angry in the moment, this is normal,” Werner said after missing many major chances this season.
He was enraged,he may be let down, he may now has a free day before putting his chin up the following day.
“He is a top-notch professional who puts in long hours. We’ll go from there because he’s in places.“We will never give up, we will never give up believing,
and I have the impression that everybody understands the situation as it is, and as a striker, it is simple; you score the next game and no one talks about it.”
