Werner backed to have a 'fantastic' Chelsea career

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has backed Timo Werner to have a successful career at the London club despite a recent loss in form. 

The striker started his life in England on the right note but has since seen his form dip, scoring just once in two months. 

He has missed a number of open chances during the period, something that might have hugely impacted his confidence. 

"I can speak with him and I can manage him on the training pitch because that is where little periods like this always turn around. It is something I experienced a lot in my career and something that all players will experience in their careers in their own ways,"

"When you are a top player like Timo has shown that he is, all eyes are on you, and then it becomes magnified. The basics are the same and that is what my job is, to tell him that and work with him on it,"

Lampard further moved to encourage the 24-year-old, highlighting the qualities that saw him become such a sensation while at RB Leipzig. 

"My job is to support around him and give him positivity and confidence. Timo Werner didn’t by chance score the amount of goals he has scored over the last few years. He has scored those goals because of his huge talent,"

"It is a tough time here for him at the moment but it is a small period in what I believe will be a fantastic career for him going forward at Chelsea. I have no doubts over that and I hope people around me can also see it that way,"

Lampard and Chelsea travel to the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night to take on Leicester City in an English Premier League match, hoping to continue with their winning run following a 2-0 win over Fulham last time out.
