Dutch greats Ruud Gullit and Marco van Basten do not believe Chelsea striker Timo Werner is capable of performing at the top level.
And Gullit believes Werner is suffering a confidence crisis.
"You see he doesn't trust himself. But as a coach you see he's always in the right place.
"If he puts the ball in the net only once… "
But Van Basten insists: “He's just not good enough for the top level."
Despite criticism in some quarters, Werner's season stats last term remain competitive, with manager Thomas Tuchel insisting the striker is a key part of his system. In 52 games, Werner scored 12 goals and produced 15 assists. He has a deal to 2025.
