Timo Werner aims dig at Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel?

Having scored only seven goals in all competitions for his club so far this season, Timo Werner has now seemingly aimed a dig at Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.  

Despite the criticism the forward has faced since arriving in the Premier League in July 2020, he has continued to be called up for Germany's national team.

In stark contrast to his troubles with finding the back of the net for the Blues, he has been in fine form for Die Mannschaft with six goals in as many games, according to the Daily Express.

The 26-year-old once again got on the scoresheet for his country in a 2-0 friendly win over Israel on Saturday, and later reflected on why his goalscoring fortunes seem so different with his national team, seemingly pointing the finger at club boss Tuchel. 

"I'm a striker and always want to score," Werner told reporters after the final whistle, per Goal. 

"Things aren't going the way I'd like at Chelsea, so it's all the better that things are going well here under Hansi Flick. 

"I really enjoy playing football, no matter where I'm playing.

"There are differences in the style of play between football at Chelsea and here. 

"Maybe the one at the national team suits me better. 

"Here, I always have scoring chances, I can score goals. I feel very comfortable here."
