Timo Werner reveals the ‘special’ Chelsea player who stands out in training

Chelsea star Timo Werner is enjoying life at the Blues, despite struggling to find his feet in England as of yet.

The German will be hoping to learn off his team-mates, starting with a slightly 'special' player – N'Golo Kante.

Werner admits that he has been left stunned by the Frenchman's ability on the pitch and his attitude off it.

“We have so many good players! 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.

"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.”

Werner has been used down the left-hand side of Frank Lampard's attack in recent weeks.

And the forward admits he is still adapting to his new role and his new surroundings.

“I’ve played good games here on the left and on the right wing, but I’ve never been able to radiate the goal danger that distinguished me from the centre at Leipzig.

"The Premier League is different. Of course, I’ve already shown that I can make the difference in the league, but I also played a few games where I honestly have to say: It wasn’t anything!

"Despite everything, I have a lot of fun here and I hope that the goals are slowly coming in and that I can make my game a little more variable over the left.”
