Why I shouted at Timo Werner during Everton game – Chelsea boss, Tuchel

Chelsea head coach, Thomas Tuchel has given reasons he shouted at his forward, Timo Werner during Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Everton on Monday.

During the first half of the encounter at Stamford Bridge, the German tactician was caught shouting at Werner over positioning.

And ahead of Chelsea’s trip to face Leeds United on Saturday, Tuchel emphasised that he did not mean to be harsh on Werner.

“It was very direct, and at the moment without spectators, things like this can get out there,” Tuchel told reporters at Cobham Training Centre.

“I was aware [of the video] because people around me showed me.

“We reminded Timo to rejoin his position on the right because he was on the left too long. Switching positions is not a problem but we wanted Callum [Hudson-Odoi] on the left and Timo on the right side to make things easier for him. We reminded him but it was not an insult or aggressive. It was direct.

“I know what you mean but in the end, if it is respectful and not insulting each other [it is fine]. I have no problem with the players being direct to me and sometimes on the sideline, the coaches are in a game mode where things are direct and meant to be clear.”
