Tuchel blasts Werner over Chelsea transfer exit moans and tells him he should be 'happy' to have £270k-a-week contract | The Sun

THOMAS TUCHEL has ripped into Timo Werner for refusing to commit his future to Chelsea despite raking in a hefty wage packet.

The 26-year-old earns a whopping £270,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge, and Tuchel reckons he should be happy with that amount.


Werner got on the scoresheet during the Blues' 2-1 win over Club America on their pre-season tour of the States.

However, he revealed he could leave Chelsea to seek more game time, and hinted at a conflict between him and Tuchel over ideas.

The striker was absent in Chelsea's loss to Charlotte FC due to a hamstring injury.

But Tuchel took the time out after the match to respond to Werner's remarks.

When asked for a response, Tuchel said: “I'm surprised, I would be very happy as a young guy having a contract at Chelsea Football Club.

Werner's chances of first-team football took another hit when Chelsea signed Raheem Sterling from Man City in July.

Sterling spearheaded Chelsea's attack for the first time alongside Kai Havertz and Mason Mount against Charlotte FC.

But the England international failed to produce an instant impact on his debut for the Blues.

Although he did score a penalty in the West Londoner's 5-3 penalty loss to the MLS outfit.
