Timo Werner has lifted the lid on his friendship with teammate Kai Havertz, revealing how ‘it feels like our relationship is growing together’.

Werner and Havertz have maintained a close friendship since the latter’s move to Stamford Bridge from Bayer Leverkusen in September of last year.

Havertz, who scored the winner in the Champions League final against Manchester City, earns a whopping £140,000-a-week, which equals £7,280,000-per-year, according to spotrac.com

Speaking with ChelseaFC.com earlier this week, Werner shed light on his bond with one of the world’s best young football players and reflected on their first season together at Stamford Bridge. 

“Of course we speak the same language, we are good friends, so it’s not unusual we have a good relationship, but now we can show it on the pitch.

‘At the beginning of the season we both had our own problems, so we couldn’t watch the other one, but now both of us can handle it very good and can look out for each other.

‘On the pitch, mainly it’s me to him at the moment, and that’s no problem! We just want to win and it really doesn’t matter who scores the goals.’

However, it hasn’t always been plain-sailing for former RB Leipzig striker Werner, who admits he has been negatively affected at times by the battle and struggle with being the target of media scrutiny as a high-profile Premier League footballer.
