Southampton boss Ralph Hassenhuttl has given Frank Lampard some advice on how to get the best out of Timo Werner.

The Southampton boss, who managed Werner at RB Leipzig, said: “I know Timo very well and I have seen him in situations where he was not good.

“Most of the time when I have seen this is because of the reason that the game doesn’t fit to him. The team didn’t play he can bring his best on the pitch, I think.

“He is definitely a player where you have to adapt your game on him. If you do this, he will give you everything you need from a striker.

“But therefore, he has some qualities you really have to focus on. The good thing for him, I think at Leipzig when I was there, is we concentrated completely on his qualities.

“Our quick transitions after winning the ball, it was perfect for our game. Also, when he was with Jullian [Nagelsmann], he was also scoring a lot of goals.

“You really need to bring him into his best position so he can bring his strength on the pitch. For me, he is one of the best strikers in Europe.”
