Tottenham hero Rafael van der Vaart launched an attack on Chelsea forward Timo Werner. He claimed the £53million man has been playing like a “blind horse” during his first year at the club.

Werner has struggled to settle at Chelsea since joining from RB Leipzig last year. Van der Vaart tore into the German during a rant over Chelsea’s current playing squad.

“I would always play Ziyech because he is the best,” he said, as reported by Sport Witness. “Ziyech comes inside and also gives the cross, just like Mount. Giroud needs that.

“He [Werner] is super-fast, and that might be nice in an away game when you’re under pressure, but it’s just putting your head down and running around. Mount is a great footballer, who I do think needs to make a step up.

“I compare him a bit to Calvin Stengs: you have to become a bloke. Werner is really a blind horse. He has already proven that in Germany.”
