Timo Werner may have been surprised to hear one message from a fan during an open training session on Wednesday, and the Chelsea striker has responded on social media
Timo Werner has responded after a Chelsea fan told him to get out of the club during an open training session on Wednesday.
Ahead of Sunday’s clash with Arsenal, Blues fans were invited to Stamford Bridge to watch the players in action practicing.
At one stage, supporters were given the chance to speak up at the event when the host asked them in the stands at Stamford Bridge who could they make out.
A fan was handed the microphone and said: “Let’s have it right… get Werner out of the club.”
It produced a stunned reaction from the others sat nearby, with many booing and some even going to confront the prankster.
He was eventually chased out of the ground where he was spotted getting into a taxi with another fan speaking about the event on social media.
She tweeted: “Maybe I shouldn’t attend open training sessions #triggered’ with a crying with laughter emoji before adding ‘thanks people but I really ain’t no legend. Save that terminology for our ex players/managers.”
Taking to social media himself, Werner shared a positive message, showing he had not taken the comment to heart.

Werner has struggled for goals since his £50m move from RB Leipzig last summer where he scored just six times in the Premier League.
The Germany international had a tough time again at the weekend when he was deployed as the main man up front against Crystal Palace.
But there are high hopes for the 25-year-old after the arrival of Lukaku, who likes to play with a partner.
He said: “I think a lot is about communication. I’m a guy who is very open minded.
“I always ask my teammates questions. I ask what they want from me. The next couple of weeks is important for me to be open to the mindset.
“We have a certain type of playing style here. I don’t have to adapt too much as with the national team we play in the same system. I will adapt to find a way to help the team.”

Both Lukaku and Werner had their best seasons when partnered up front with a striker that compliments their style.
The Belgian netted 30 times in all competitions last season while playing alongside Lautaro Martinez at Inter Milan, going on to win Serie A.
Werner scored 34 times the year before playing off Yussuf Poulson at RB Leipzig, earning that big-money move to Chelsea.
