Timo Werner has delivered an honest verdict on his first season at Chelsea after his big-money move from RB Leipzig.
The £47.7m striker was struggling early on with missed chances aplenty as he attempted to find his feet in the Premier League.
The arrival of Thomas Tuchel has certainly helped, though, and while 12 goals and 14 assists is far from his most productive season, he takes comfort in the improvement he has made since his early days at Stamford Bridge.
“I think there were a lot of ups and downs. I started very well, then in the middle of the season I was struggling, and I had to adapt to the pace, the strength and the agility of the Premier League,” he told the official Chelsea website.
“But now, in the last two or three months, not that I’m scoring the goals, but in the end we are winning games. So, until now, I can say it was maybe not the best season for me in terms of scoring.
“But in terms of how I developed and improved, and how I’ve adapted to the Premier League, it’s been a good step for me towards performing better for the whole season next time.”
