Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was popular during his time at the club as he scored a good number of goals for Chelsea.

Hasselbaink has now passed on a message to Timo Werner after he failed to find the back of the net in the crucial Premier League game against Leicester City.

Generally, Werner had a good game but missed some good chances to score, and Hasselbaink has now advised the German to learn a bit of composure.

“I like Timo Werner’s spirit, his energy, he keeps on going, but when you are a striker at a big team, you wait for these moments when you are playing in a big match,” Hasselbaink said.

“These decisive moments are when you have to be there and put the ball in the net, and for me he has not done that enough.

“What I do like is that he puts himself in positions where he gets opportunities. Now the last bit, he has to do better. He has to be calmer and more calculated.

“Having six goals is not good enough, it is not a good return, and he knows that.

“Does he give up? No. Do I like that? Yes. But in big games you are going to get one or two big games, you have to be there and you have to make the difference.”

Hasselbaink then added that Werner could be the main man next season as he backed him to succeed due to his stubborn nature.

“The good thing is he is getting himself those opportunities, he is always there for that final ball,” the Dutchman added.

‘Will he become calmer? Time will tell. Do I have hope? Yes, because he keeps getting those chances, and he is stubborn like that, and you need to have that as a striker.

“Let’s see.”
