One of the most important tasks new Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has on his hands is trying to ensure that he brings out the best out of two of his key attacking players in Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. The two German superstars have not impressed at Stamford Bridge since moving to England from the German Bundesliga in the summer and there have been talks over fears whether they would continue to be used under the new manager or whether they stand the risk of getting sold or dropped to the bench.
While Havertz was signed from Bayer Leverkusen, his compatriot and fellow attacker Timo Werner was brought in from RB Leipzig. Both players were signed by former manager Frank Lampard to come and spice up the Blues attack following the tremendous season both of them had in their last campaign before swapping the Bundesliga for the Premier League.
Following the arrival of Tuchel as the club’s new manager, they now have the opportunity to have a breath of fresh air and try to make amends by ensuring that they put their drowning careers back on track. They will be looking to impress the new manager so they can retain their starting spots in the team.
With a lot of debates over the last days relating to whether or not the German manager would use his compatriots or drop them to the bench, Stephen Warnock has now spoken out on the issue. Warnock told talkSPORT that even though the two players have struggled for most of the season so far, they can still return to playing the kind of football they were known for before moving to England.
Warnock said the reason is that Tuchel already has an idea of what it takes to play in Germany having already managed Borussia Dortmund before moving to PSG.
