Cesc Fabregas believes Timo Werner is being let down by his Chelsea team-mates and looks ‘fed up’ as a result.
The German striker completed his £47million move from RB Leipzig to Stamford Bridge last summer but has since struggled to settle in west London.
After becoming a goal-scoring machine in the Bundesliga, the 25-year-old hasn’t been able to replicate that same form in England just yet, managing six goals in his first Premier League campaign.
His performances have left many Blues supporters frustrated given how Werner has missed plenty of guilt-edge chances in front of goal, leading to the club to splash the cash once again and bring Romelu Lukaku back to the club for £98m.
But while Werner’s struggles have continued in front of goal this season, scoring just once in seven appearances, Fabregas believes the Germany international can offer a whole lot more – only if his club team-mates give him the ball.
During a Q&A on his Twitter page on Thursday, one Chelsea fan asked Fabregas what he made of Werner, to which the Spaniard replied: “He makes so many good runs but sometimes they either don’t see him or don’t play the pass. He looks fed up sometimes.”
