Timo Werner Talks About His Preferred Position
Said to be left aghast at Lampard’s decision to persistently deploy him on the flanks, Werner has once again been featured centrally by Tuchel. And the striker spoke about how Tuchel’s decision has helped him scour his groove in the middle.
“I am happy when we win and when I make two assists,” the 24 year old striker after the game. “But as a striker, you want to score.
“It’s a long time now for me, I’ve never had such a long period in my career. You can’t do anything but keep going, to try to do your best on the field. With that, the goals will come.”
“Every manager is different in how they want to play,” Werner added. “He gives us a lot of ideas. Now I’m playing as a left ten and not a left winger, so I have more space for my runs in the middle.
“I can also play behind a striker or with a ten behind me and these are good for me. I think with the last wins, it’s it’s a good move from the manager.”
“I feel him stronger and stronger every day,” Tuchel said when asked about Werner’s display. “Today he was freer and I could really feel him on the pitch.
“He was absolutely in the game mentally and physically and he was decisive. This is the most important thing because if he can continue like this. The goals will come, for sure.”
