Former Premier League manager Harry Redknapp believes that Frank Lampard was let down by the Chelsea duo Timo Werner and Kai Havertz.
Chelsea spent quite a bit of money on the two German players during the summer transfer window but Lampard failed to get the best out of them.
Redknapp believes that the failure of the two players has cost Lampard his job at Stamford Bridge.
He went on to explain that Lampard was probably not responsible for signing those two players and he had to take the fall for someone else’s transfer choices.
Timo Werner has struggled in the recent weeks after a reasonably good start to his life in the Premier League. on the other hand, Kai Havertz has been quite poor.
Redknapp claims that Werner might not be cut out for the Premier League because of his lack of physicality.
It will be interesting to see if the new manager manages to get the best out of the two German players during the remainder of the season now.
He told talkSPORT: “When you look at the players, people say he’s spent all this money, did he bring the players in? Did he bring the Germans in? Management is so different now, managers aren’t always responsible for signing players.”
“The two German players have been massive disappointments, massive. I’m not even sure Timo Werner is cut out for Premier League football, the physical side is too much for him. I doubt very much whether Frank had a big say over in who came in.”
