Timo Werner reveals what Chelsea boss Tuchel usually tells his teammates about N’Golo Kante

Timo Werner has revealed what Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel tells them about N’Golo Kante as the Germany international underlines the importance of the midfielder to the team’s Champions League hopes.

Werner and Kante both played key roles on Wednesday night as Chelsea defeated Real Madrid to book their spot in the final of Europe’s premier competition.

The striker opened the scoring – with Mason Mount putting the tie beyond Real’s reach at the death – and Kante landed the man of the match award.

It was another remarkable performance from the France international – whose ability to cover ground and win back possession continues to amaze – and Werner expressed his delight at playing on the same team as Kante, report the Metro.

“N’Golo is always really important for us,” said Werner.

“He’s a beast, to win the ball and fight and run all over the place.

“The manager tells us every time he is playing that we play with two players.

“He’s a really good guy, plays so good, and also last night how he ran next to me and created a chance and also when he ran with the ball, gave a pass to Christian at the second goal.

“He’s so important to us and I’m very glad we have him in our squad.”
