Timo Werner Says It’s Difficult to Play in the Premier League

London – Timo Werner admits difficulties in recent weeks at Chelsea. He also said he had previously underestimated challenges in the Premier League.

According to the 24-year-old, the grueling schedule of matches every three days has had an impact on his performances.

“The Premier League is a little different from the league I was used to before (Bundesliga)” said Werner.

“I have to say it was tougher than I imagined. The physical contact here is tougher than in Germany. I expected it, but it’s not like this.”

“I think it’s also hard when you have to play once every three days, and in the Champions League, as well as in international matches. You have to play on Saturday against a team that has been rested all week and only thinks about your contract duel,” added Timo Werner.

Need Adapt

Timo Werner admits it is not easy to be the best in every game. However, he also admits the Premier League is very exciting, even though it is tough.

“There are so many games right now and I think there were a few chances I missed two or three weeks ago, that’s not the best thing. But I think when you are just in a country and a league. It’s always a bit tough to adapt and it shouldn’t be. reason.”

“I have to try my best to become the best footballer in this league. I think I have adapted well,” added Werner.
