Timo Werner is one of the latest addition to Frank Lampard’s blue army this summer.
The German striker made his debut in a friendly against Brighton at the Amex Stadium last Saturday and scored his first goal in a Chelsea shirt just four minutes into the game.
Brighton equalized late into the game from the penalty spot which saw the match ended in a draw.
The German striker featured in an interview with the Club’s website which was centred mostly around his adaptability to his new team and new life.
The 24 year old German talked about life in London and how he has manged to settle amongst the squad.
“When I first came to England it was hard to understand everyone’s English,” he admits.
“Because I haven’t had to speak this language since my school days. It’s not been as hard as I expected though, everyone has helped me settle in. People have spoken very slowly so I can understand and right now I feel very happy. I can understand everything and communicate in English.”
“Having someone who can speak German always helps, and also Kova can speak German too, so he’s helped me settle in. They have helped me around the training ground but also in explaining to me where is good to go for dinner, where is good to live, things like this”.
He also spoke about Lampard’s plans for the future.
“He’s [Lampard’s] been great to work with and he’s been discussing his plans for the future, and how we want to battle with teams like Man City and Liverpool,” he told the club’s official website.
“I think Chelsea is a big club and with this team that we have, I think we can reach a new level.”
