New Chelsea assistant coach Zsolt Low only just joined the club few days ago, but the Hungarian knows a lot about our summer signing Timo Werner.

Zsolt Low was a part of RB Leipzig’s set-up from 2016 to 2018, where he oversaw the development of Timo Werner. Under Low, Werner grew into a top player, and Low believes that the 24-year-old isn’t yet the finished article.

Low revealed how much Werner wants to succeed as a player that he started taking the nutrition aspect seriously.

“I can proudly say that it was great working with him and monitor his development,” Chelsea’s new assistant boss Zsolt Low told Nemzeti Sport back in 2020.

“In his first season, he has already made it clear with his goals that it is worth planning with him in the long run. I met a humble, a little shy guy in him, who consciously built himself up.

“A good example of the latter is that he was among the first to stop eating his much-loved gummy bear, crisps, and soft drinks when the coaching staff – along with the club’s philosophy – asked him to have a healthy lifestyle.

“Later, as the second coach of PSG, we happened to spend a holiday together in Switzerland. I experienced once again how intelligent and sensitive person he was while skiing.

“To this day, we exchange messages after major matches, I look at him as my friend.

“There is not much to improve on the speed of a player, it is an innate ability. However, muscle building can be developed, it is important how intensely and frequently a football player sprints.

“He’s been evolving for years, but he hasn’t finished his journey yet.”
