A newspaper has mocked up a North Macedonian identity card with a headshot of Germany striker Werner and initials ‘TW’ for his signature.

Football fans mocked the Chelsea forward for squandering the simple chance, with one fan claiming he is the worst forward in the Premier League era since former Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata.

One Chelsea fan tweeted: ‘Timo Werner is making it difficult to defend him again lol’ while another claimed the German striker ‘is not a serious footballer.’ 

While one Liverpool fan posted: ‘Klopp really looked at Werner and said, “nah I’m alright”‘ in relation to Werner being linked with a move to Liverpool before joining the west Londoners.

Werner joined Stamford Bridge having scored 34 goals in 45 matches for Bundesliga outfit RBLeipzig the season before, but has just five Premier League goals in 28 appearances for the Blues. 

The German press was in shock after the national team’s ’embarrassing’ 2-1 World Cup qualifying defeat on Thursday morning, with one outlet simply saying: ‘This wasn’t part of the plan’!
