Werner 'will show who he really is' at Euro 2020 after 'up and down' season at Chelsea, says Boateng James Westwood

 

The German defender is confident his compatriot will shine at the summer tournament despite a testing first year in English football

Jerome Boateng has backed Timo Werner to "show who he really is" at Euro 2020 after an "up and down" season at Chelsea.

Much was expected of Werner at Stamford Bridge following his £47.5 million ($67m) switch to Chelsea from RB Leipzig last summer, but he did not adapt to English football as quickly as supporters hoped.

The 25-year-old struggled to replicate the prolific form in front of goal he showed at Red Bull Arena, but still played a key role in the Blues' run to Champions League glory and Boateng expects to see him back to his best for Germany at the European Championships.
