British actor, and Chelsea fan, Rory Jennings has slammed Timo Werner for his decision to join Tottenham after playing for Chelsea just a few years ago.

Werner is on the verge of completing a six-month loan move to Spurs, which could become permanent at the end of the season, depending on the two parties.

The German striker spent two years at Stamford Bridge, helping the Blues win their second UEFA Champions League trophy, before returning to RB Leipzig, where he has struggled a bit since leaving Chelsea.

For Jennings, Werner built a legacy for himself at Chelsea, but that is now under threat with the impending transfer to Spurs.

Speaking on talkSPORT radio, he said: “Timo Werner is going to Tottenham, I’m gutted about it simply because he played a huge part in Chelsea wining the Champions League and he’s now decided to tarnish his legacy.

“There are few rules in football you mustn’t break. You do not go from Chelsea to Tottenham, you do not play for Tottenham if you want to be loved at Chelsea. So, Werner going to Spurs has upset me because of what he once meant to me.

“However, the key question is how good is he? Can he improve Tottenham? I think the answer is ‘no’. He’s so wasteful. He misses not only chances, he misses sitters. I think his has flop written all over it. I don’t see him bridging the gap.”
