Germany head coach Hansi Flick was not delighted with Timo Werner’s performance in the 2-1 World Cup qualifying win over Romania on Friday.
The Chelsea forward, who has been Germany’s first-choice number nine since Flick took over, once again got the nod to start.
However, he failed to register any shot on target before being replaced by Thomas Muller in the second half.
And speaking of Werner after the game, Flick said (via Sport Buzzer):
“[Werner] is quite capable of opening up spaces where it is tight and converting rebounds.
“[But] he didn’t have the positioning you need.
“He was often parallel with Serge Gnabry or Leroy Sané, who had the ball.
“We still have to train that a bit.
“In Leipzig, he had 25 to 30 goal contributions every season. He is a striker who knows how to score goals.
“Timo plays in a top team at Chelsea. He gets the assignments with us, he gets the backing with us.”
