Chelsea star Timo Werner thanks fans for backing him after one supporter hurled abuse during open training session

CHELSEA star Timo Werner thanked supporters for loving and supporting him on a day he was abused by one fan inside Stamford Bridge.

The Blues held an open training session at their West London home on Wednesday with supporters in attendance getting a glimpse at their favourite stars as well as the Champions League and Uefa Super Cup trophies.

But fans also got the chance to take part in a Q&A, with one unfairly singling out Werner for criticism.

When asked to predict the score of Chelsea's match against Arsenal on Sunday the supporter instead said: "Listen, I've got a word. Let's have it. Get Werner out the club."

But Werner clearly did not pick up on the remark or if he did, chose to ignore it.

Instead, he later took to social media to share his gratitude for the love and support shown towards him.

A tweet read: "Thanks for all the love and support I received today, Blues Fans! Really appreciate it."

Chelsea fans inside the stadium were quick to back up Werner after his verbal blasting.

Supporters booed the person who abused Werner and one woman shouted at the guilty party, telling him he is the one who should "get out".

Werner has also been publicly backed by manager Thomas Tuchel, despite scoring only 12 goals in 54 games last season.

Romelu Lukaku has arrived to add more firepower but Tuchel is confident the pair can work up-front together.

He said: "I think it will help Timo a lot, with the arrival of Romelu.

“He takes responsibility, can take some pressure off Timo, Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic, so we have more variations.

“We can play with two strikers or go with a front three. The arrival of Romelu is good news for Timo.”
