‘If a woman doesn’t want to go out with you, you can’t force her. Step back and she might call you ‘: Thomas Tuchel gives a VERY different advice to get Timo Werner to score … after joking that horror miss was a bad pass for Germany!
- Timo Werner’s terrible miss to Germany was the shock of North Macedonia’s defeat
- Werner has endured terrible form with just two goals in his last 31 games
- Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel insists that Werner will soon be one of the goals
Thomas Tuchel has compared Timo Werner’s attempts to recapture his best score sheet to a romantic chase after the attacker came under fire this week for a horrific miss on international service with Germany.
Werner scored a shot terribly wide with the goal at the mercy of Germany’s World Cup clash with North Macedonia this week. The game was 1-1 at the time, but North Macedonia went on to record a shocking 2-1 victory.
Tuchel revealed that since Werner has returned to Chelsea, he has had to avoid working too hard to regain his touch. It prompted him to provide a bizarre analogy for his thinking.
Timo Werner’s scoring woes went from bad to worse with a horror miss for Germany this week
He dragged the ball from close range and North Macedonia went through to win 2-1
Werner was back in training on Friday as Chelsea prepared to take on West Brom
‘If a woman doesn’t want to go out with you, you can’t force her. Step back and she might call you, ”Tuchel said at his press conference on Friday.
‘It was a bad pass from Ilkay Gundogan, that’s how I see it! I’m just kidding. He missed that opportunity and everyone is passionate about talking about it which is a bit annoying.
‘It’s easy to point the finger at Timo right now, which I don’t understand. I’m glad he’s here again.
“To be fair, he finds himself at a time when he is not confident and it is not that easy. The goals don’t work as usual, but he trains for us.
‘He still scores for us, still assists for us, still wins penalties. If this is the most critical point of his career, you can say that it is still quite impressive so far.

A £ 53 million man, Werner has scored twice in his last 31 appearances for both club and country
Timo has been scoring since he was five years old and he has never stopped. So that he can trust his brain and body, it will come back. That’s easier said than done.
‘Yesterday I sent him out of training because he wanted to finish extra with us. But I sent it because it will come. The goals will come.
‘Of course he has to do something and the best thing is to work hard. Work hard against the ball, make runs, don’t hesitate, be fearless, don’t overthink it.
‘It’s easy to say, but now is the challenge. Timo starts tomorrow and here we go. ‘
Werner was a picture of dejection at the final whistle of Germany’s shocking defeat this week
But Tuchel insisted that it is only a matter of time before Werner is back among the goals
Werner has scored 10 goals for Chelsea in 39 games since taking over £ 53 million from Red Bull Leipzig last summer.
But his recent form pointed to a particularly alarming slump with just two goals in his last 31 appearances for both club and country. His last at bat was 11 games ago, in the 2-0 win over Newcastle on 15 February.
Werner will try to break his current drought when Chelsea hosts West Brom in the early Premier League kickoff.
