Timo Werner surprised by special Chelsea teammate

Timo Werner is impressed with the quality of players at Chelsea.

The German striker joined the Blues in the summer transfer window from RB Leipzig and is taking his time to adapt to the Premier League scoring just four goals in 13 Premier League appearances.

He is quite impressed with the sheer number of quality players in the Blues squad and one particular player stands out the most to him.

“We have so many good players,” said Werner in an interview with Sky Deutschland.

“But one is special, even if many know how good he is: N’Golo Kanté stands out in real life.

“What he runs away from the ball and what kind of competitor he is in training – unbelievable.

“If you think he can’t get the ball, then he’ll steal it from behind you. This is impressive.”

“Although I knew beforehand that N’Golo was probably the best six in the world, he always surprised me positively in training,” said the German. “Having him on your own team is a blessing.

“Even offensively, he just marches so much. And what’s more, he’s just the dearest person on earth.

“As an example: he is knocked down from behind and laughs at himself first. It’s really impressive how someone can have such peace of mind as N’Golo.

“It is something special to be able to play with him.”
