Timo Werner reveals why he scores more goals for Germany than Chelsea in latest post-match interview

Chelsea striker Timo Werner is currently enjoying his international break with the German national team.

Werner has endured a tough second season at Chelsea with game time and attacking returns being a rarity but the former Leipzig man is presently at the top of his game during the international break as he scored Germany’s second goal in their two-nil win over Israel last night.

While Werner remains a potent and reliable goalscorer for his country, it’s a whole different story at club level with just one premier league goal to his name more than halfway into the current season.
