Timo Werner might have started life in London pretty well, but he has admitted that there are some things he has found difficult.

Werner, who won a penalty for Chelsea on his debut, has revealed that driving in London has been quite challenging for him.

“The life in London is good, I’ve already got an apartment in the city,” Werner said.

“That was really important for me to settle down fast into my own space where I can be after games and training, to feel at home.

“Also the driving, I drive on my own, so that was also a problem at the beginning of course. But now it works very well.

“And now I thank also the people around me the staff, the manager, the players it was a really warm welcome from them.

“So it makes it really easy to come here and play for the club. It’s really fun to walk through the streets in London and live the experience. It’s great.”

Speaking on the difference between the Germans and English people, Werner said: “In some points the English people are different to the German people in of course, but in the end we are all European, so it’s nearly the same.

“For Germans the traffic that you drive on the left side, because when you walk you have to start looking right not left. So that’s dangerous…”

While Werner has a good grasp of speaking English, the German has admitted that he finds it difficult to read, but is pleased with the help he has been receiving so far.

He added: “But it’s easy to come here because the people around me are so nice and helped me a lot in every situation.

“My English is not so bad but to read the hard English when you get bills or something, it’s sometimes hard but I have a lot of help here and it makes it easy for me.”
