Chelsea striker Timo Werner has admitted he is not ‘satisfied’ with the amount of game time he has had this season but insists he is not looking to leave.

Werner has started just three Premier League games for Chelsea this season and scored his first Premier League goal of the season against Southampton before the international break.

“The last few weeks have been difficult at Chelsea. After many years, I was suddenly a little behind and had to fight my way again,” Werner told German outlet Express.de.

“A career always goes up and down, never steadily upwards. But you learn to deal with it.

“I have to bite into it again, that challenges me. Of course, I would like to enjoy more minutes, so I give my best in training.

“Of course, I can’t be satisfied if I don’t play. Of course, I want to be a regular in a big team. But I’m not saying that if I don’t start 10 or 15 games before Christmas, I really want to leave.

“Things happen relatively quickly in football. I have to look at the bigger picture to make my decision.”
