UEFA confirms venue for Liverpool’s Champions League clash with Leipzig
Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has told striker, Timo Werner, that there is no room for ‘self-pity’ after the 24-year-old saw a goal chalked off in the Blues’ Premier League 1-0 victory against Liverpool at Anfield on Thursday night.
Werner had the ball in the back of the net after rounding Liverpool goalkeeper, Alisson Becker, and clipping into the empty goal.
His effort was, however, ruled out by the narrowest of offside calls.
The Germany attacker has only scored one goal since Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard last January.
But Tuchel, who was satisfied with Werner’s display, told him he doesn’t need to worry too much about his lack of goals for Chelsea this season.
“I demand 100% in every training, I do not allow self-pity,” Tuchel said at his post-match press conference.
“Timo [Werner] is full of talent and plays for one of the best clubs in the world, in one of the best leagues in the world. So there is no need for him to worry too much.
“So if he puts in the effort, puts himself in a state of mind to play on the highest level, we’re not counting the minutes [to goals], and for me and my approach, it is not an issue.”
Werner will now hope to score for Chelsea when they face Everton in their next game on Monday.
