Timo Werner names biggest obstacles since securing Chelsea transfer

Timo Werner has admitted the driving in England can be tough and that reading his bills is a bit tricky.

The German joined Chelsea from RB Leipzig for around £40million this summer after scoring 95 goals in 159 appearances for the German outfit.

Werner made his debut against Brighton on Monday and made an immediate impact by winning a penalty for his new side.

But it's not all been plain sailing for the 24-year-old who's had to overcome the challenges of moving to a new country.

"The life in London is good, I've already got an apartment in the city," Werner said.

"That was really important for me to settle down fast into my own space where I can be after games and training, to feel at home.

"Also the driving, I drive on my own, so that was also a problem at the beginning of course. But now it works very well.

"And now I thank also the people around me the staff, the manager, the players it was a really warm welcome from them.

With regards to the citizens of England, he added: "In some points the English people are different to the German people in of course, but in the end we are all European, so it's nearly the same.

"For Germans the traffic that you drive on the left side, because when you walk you have to start looking right not left. So that's dangerous…

"But it's easy to come here because the people around me are so nice and helped me a lot in every situation.
