Under-fire Chelsea attacker Timo Werner can take solace from Didier Drogba’s slow start at Stamford Bridge according to journalist Oliver Young-Myles who writes for inews in the United Kingdom (UK). Just like Didier Drogba, Timo Werner has made a relatively slow start to life at Chelsea since his lucrative transfer from German Bundesliga team RB Leipzig. The Blues paid a whooping £52m to sign him from the German club and he has scored nine goals in 25 appearances but his misses in front of goal has generated more noise than the ones he scored.
Timo Werner can look up to Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, who made a slow start in West London before going on to attain legendary status at the club. Timo Werner has been tagged a flop by some Chelsea fans despite scoring eight goals in his first 20 games for the club with four of those goals coming in the Premier League but a certain Didier Drogba netted just seven goals in his first 20 Chelsea and the rest they say is history as he was able to recover from that slow start to win a lot of trophies for Chelsea, while playing a starring role.
Werner has already admitted that the Premier League is tougher than he thought and all he needs is to work harder and improve his game. Timo Werner had gone for almost 15 hours without finding the back of the net until the FA Cup third round win over lowly Morecambe at the weekend. Timo Werner scored the second goal of the game as the Blues trashed their guests from English League Two 4-0 to seal a place in the next round of the competition. England midfielder Mason Mount had scored the opening goal of the match. Kai Havertz and Callum Hudson-Odoi were also amongst the goals for Chelsea.
