Chelsea fan tells Timo Werner to leave the club over stadium's PA system

A Chelsea fan speaking over the Stamford Bridge PA system has instructed Timo Werner to leave the club in no uncertain terms.  

The German striker and his Chelsea teammates were involved in a training session at the club's stadium on Wednesday morning.

Also present were a number of Chelsea fans, and a microphone.

As the emcee for the event worked the crowd and asked one fan what his score prediction was for Sunday's clash with Arsenal, he received an unexpected answer.

"I've got a word yeah, let's have it right," he began. "Get Werner out the club."

Far from any great sounds of approval from his fellow Chelsea fans around him, the suggestion that Timo Werner ought to leave the club brought a chorus of boos.

Signed from RB Leipzig last summer for £53 million, the 25-year-old experienced an underwhelming first season in the Premier League.

After Romelu Lukaku confirmed his £97.5 million return to the club earlier this week, Werner's standing in manager Thomas Tuchel's mind seems uncertain.

However, that is no excuse for some Chelsea fans who do not want to see him cast aside as this outspoken fan suggested at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

So disgusted was one fan with the suggestion that Werner should leave the club that she stood up and decided to offer a response of her own.

"No, you get out," she told him. "Who are you? Who do you think you are?"

She later posted an image of the man getting into a taxi and leaving the ground on her Twitter account.

Meanwhile, Timo Werner himself has thanked those Chelsea fans who stood by him throughout the strange ordeal.
