Timo Werner has sent a heartfelt message to Chelsea fans on Twitter after the overwhelming support he’s received on Wednesday following a training ground incident.
The Blues held an opening training session today to give a small crowd the opportunity to watch the first team train at Stamford Bridge. This meant some got to watch new signing Romelu Lukaku in the flesh for the first time since his return.
However, the event was overshadowed by a controversial moment in the stands.
There are videos circulating on social media in which a Chelsea ‘fan’ in the crowd on the PA system urged German forward Werner to leave the club.
“Let’s have it right. Get Werner out the club,” the supporter said.
The Evening Standard confirms the fan used his opportunity to speak about Chelsea on a microphone to send a harsh message to the 25-year-old. Also, the guilty party ended up walking off.
This even has received so much activity on social media from the Chelsea fanbase showing their love for Werner.
The 25-year-old often comes under criticism due to a lack of clinical finishing last year during his debut season as a Chelsea player, but hounding him at a training event crosses the line.
It must be stressed this is a player who won the Champions League last year. In addition, he ended up with 12 goals and 15 assists across all competitions.
Werner has sent a 15-word message to supporters after Wednesday’s drama on his personal Twitter account:
