You Will Still Face Difficult Times Ballack Warns Thomas Werner
Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack advised Timo Werner, a striker for the Blues, to adopt a “elbow mindset.”
The German striker needs to “turn the switch,” according to Ballack, because he is “a nice guy” and “too well-behaved.”
In 2020, Werner left RB Leipzig for Chelsea and brought with him an impressive Bundesliga goalscoring record.
Despite only scoring 10 goals in 56 Premier League outings for the Blues, the 26-year-old has had trouble finding his form.
Ballack encouraged Werner to work on regaining his mental fortitude in order to better his predicament.
At a media appearance in Munich, Ballack stated, “Timo has been a lot better than what he is right now in terms of personality and character.
But he hasn’t been able to make a name for himself. It is critical that he understand what is expected of him.
“Now he needs to rebuild his mental fortitude. He seems like a great guy, but he needs to find a way to turn the switch back on so he can start believing in himself again.
“He possesses the necessary skills, but in my opinion, he lacks the “elbow mindset.”
“In my opinion, he is too well-behaved and accepts his fate.
He will continue to struggle if it doesn’t alter.
