Chelsea star Timo Werner thanks fans for backing him after one supporter hurled abuse during open training session

08/19/2021

CHELSEA star Timo Werner thanked fans for loving and supporting him on a day he was abused by one Blue inside Stamford Bridge.

The Blues held an open training session at their home on Wednesday with supporters in attendance getting a glimpse at their favourite stars as well as the Champions League and Uefa Super Cup trophies.

But fans also got the chance to take part in a Q&A, and one unfairly singled out Werner for criticism.

When asked to predict the score of Chelsea's match against Arsenal on Sunday the supporter instead said: "Listen, I've got a word. Let's have it. Get Werner out the club."

But Werner clearly did not pick up on the remark or if he did, chose to ignore it.

Instead, yesterday evening he took to social media to share his gratitude for the love and support shown towards him.

A tweet read: "Thanks for all the love and support I received today, Blues Fans! Really appreciate it."

The Chelsea support also spoke out to back up Werner after his verbal blasting.

Supporters booed the fan who suggested Werner should leave and one woman shouted at the guilty party, telling him he is the one who should "get out".

Werner has also been publicly backed by manager Thomas Tuchel, despite scoring only 12 goals in 54 games last season.

Romelu Lukaku has arrived to add more firepower but Tuchel is confident the pair can work up-front together.

He said: "I think it will help Timo a lot, with the arrival of Romelu.

“He takes responsibility, can take some pressure off Timo, Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic, so we have more variations.

“We can play with two strikers or go with a front three. The arrival of Romelu is good news for Timo.”
