Thierry Henry says Timo Werner tumbled at Chelsea because he didn’t ‘feel the adoration’ during his wild spell at the club.
Werner showed up at Stamford Scaffold as a marquee signing following his £47.5 million move from RB Leipzig in 2020.
Yet, he neglected to satisfy hopes, scoring only 23 objectives in 89 games in all competitions during his two-year spell with the Blues.
Notwithstanding leaving the club with a Champions Association winners’ decoration, the German forward was often scrutinized for his end item.
Werner ended his association with Chelsea last summer as he returned to Leipzig in an arrangement worth a revealed £25 million.
And the 26-year-old has raised a ruckus around town running, scoring seven objectives in 13 matches this season.
He scored in his side’s win over Celtic on Tuesday, with Henry providing a master analysis of his structure at Leipzig.
The Arsenal legend featured Werner’s ‘confidence’ at Leipzig and contrasted it with how he felt at Chelsea.
On CBS Sports, he said: “I will call it confidence. You have players who couldn’t care less on the off chance that you put your arm around them. They will come, execute and leave.
“Then you have players that need to feel the affection. They need to feel perhaps that they are going to play for an hour and a half. The best model is the second objective.
“Above all else on the primary control, Timo Werner couldn’t have ever put that ball down at Chelsea, and then he couldn’t have ever seen [Emil] Forsberg.
“He would have hurried it trying to follow through with something, overthinking it and overdoing it. I saw it previously, he was quiet previously and he is quiet again.”
Henry added: “Perhaps he would have shot [when he brought the ball down] because individuals said he can’t score at Chelsea – it gives you confidence when you score again. Then I see him pass it with his left foot brilliantly.
“In some cases, you go to certain spots, they don’t show you that affection, I’m not saying he didn’t have it, however, if he didn’t feel it like he felt it at Leipzig, then you’re not going to be at your best and you won’t take the ideal decision.”
