'Suffering' Chelsea fans demand club re-sign Timo Werner with flop 'feasting' at Leipzig with goal of season contender | The Sun

CHELSEA fans have criticised the club's decision to sell Timo Werner amid the striker's incredible run of form.

Werner, 27, left Chelsea to re-join RB Leipzig in a £23.5million transfer last summer.

He scored 23 goals in 89 appearances during his two-year spell with the Blues and some fans were happy to see the back of him when he left Stamford Bridge in August following a mixed stint.

However, many Chelsea supporters are now begging the club to re-sign the striker amid his red-hot run of form for RB Leipzig.

Werner has scored 16 goals in 33 appearances for the German giants this season.

And he caught the attention of millions of football fans on Saturday when he netted a goal of the season contender against Augsburg.

After flicking the ball up just outside the penalty area, the striker riffled a half-volley into the top-right corner, leaving Augsburg goalkeeper Tomas Koubek stunned.

After watching Werner's wonder-strike, several Chelsea fans took to Twitter to lament the club's decision to sell him.

One person wrote: "Allowing Timo Werner to leave Chelsea was a big mistake; while we are suffering, he is feasting! What a goal!"

Another added: "I miss Timo Werner at Chelsea."

A third compared Werner to Kai Havertz, who is currently the Blues' first choice No.9: "Timo Werner was better for Chelsea than Havertz has been."

While rival fans poked fun at the Blues, with one person commenting: "Chelsea should try and sign that Timo Werner bloke."

Another wrote: "Chelsea fans wish they still had Timo Werner… Man is feasting with Leipzig."

And a third added: "Gentle reminder Timo Werner has more goals than Chelsea forwards and midfield combined this season."

Chelsea sit 11th in the Premier League table, 12 points above the relegation zone and 17 points adrift of the top four.

Following the dismissal of Graham Potter at the beginning of April, club legend Frank Lampard took over as caretaker manager until the end of the season.

However, since returning to the dugout he is yet to win a match.

The Blues are enduring a terrible run of three consecutive defeats.

And they are set to face Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday.
