Werner says he wont give Nkunku any Chelsea advice

Werner will not give Nkunku any Chelsea advice

Former Chelsea forward Timo Werner has refused to give any advice to RB Leipzig team-mate Christopher Nkunku amid transfer links to Chelsea. According to widespread reports, French forward Nkunku is set to make a move to Stamford Bridge in the summer. However, Werner, who moved to the West London club in 2020, and then returned to Germany last year, said Nkunku will have to make his experiences.

“Everyone has to make their own experiences,” Werner told Sport Bild. “I had a very good first year, the second was so-so. I can tell [Nkunku] about positive and negative experiences should he change.

“At a club like [Chelsea], you don't play like you do at RB Leipzig because there's more competition - not just on a sporting level, but also on a different level, mentally. “You have to deal with that and everyone has to find their own way.

"That's why it's the wrong approach to give tips to others. Time has changed me a lot.”
