Graham Potter, the head coach of Chelsea, has spoken out about the possibility of ex-goalkeeper Timo Werner returning.
Chelsea striker Timo Werner was among those who left Stamford Bridge shortly before the arrival of Graham Potter.
The 26-year-old moved to London from Leipzig in 2020 for a fee of approximately €50 million. But, after a tumultuous two years of trying to rediscover his form, Timo Werner returned to Leipzig for half the fee he was signed for.
Despite playing a vital role After scoring only 23 goals and 21 assists in 89 appearances, the player was deemed unfit to play in Chelsea’s quest to win the Champions League in 2021.
Timo Werner’s return to Chelsea has made headlines less than three months after his departure, with the player also confirming that “Sure. I have an unfinished business there. I’m 26. When asked about his possible return, he said, “You never know.”
Graham Potter, who took over for Thomas Tuchel less than three months ago and is a key figure in Todd Boehley’s ‘Project Chelsea-Restructure,’ has also spoken out about the situation.
Potter made it clear that he is focused on working with the squad he has now, not on Werner, who is a player at another club, but he is looking forward to bringing in some new players in January.
We’re focused on the squad we have, and while some new faces may arrive in January, I’m not thinking of Werner just yet; he’s a Leipzig player, and we must respect that.” According to Potter.
