Former Netherlands striker Marco Van Basten insists he was 18 times better than Chelsea striker Timo Werner during his playing days.

Van Basten also claimed Werner lacks confidence and isn’t good enough for the top.

During Germany’s 4-0 World Cup qualifying victory over Iceland, commentator Sierd de Vos said Van Basten in his day was 18 times better than Werner.

Speaking on Ziggo’s Rondo football show, Van Basten agreed, saying: “Minimum. I thought it was still modest.”

Gullit agreed, saying: “I can confirm it.”

Van Basten added: “It’s almost touching to watch.

“You can see he has no confidence. As a trainer, however, you see that he is in the right place every time. Now if he calmly puts the ball in there…

“He’s just not good enough for the top.”
