- Timo Werner believes that his failure to deliver the goals played a role in Frank Lampard's sack at Chelsea
- According to Werner, Lampard may not have been sacked if he had scored four of five more goals during the Englishman's time at Chelsea
- However, Werner says he can't look too much into the past because there are too many games to be played for Chelsea in the future
Chelsea star Timo Werner has admitted feeling a bit of guilt over the sacking of his former manager Frank Lampard.
According to Werner, Lampard may not have been sacked if he had scored four of five more goals during Lampard's time at Chelsea, Goal.com reports.
Recall that Lampard was sacked as Chelsea manager on January 25 after a disastrous run of results that saw the club slip out of the title race.

Despite a convincing 3-1 win in the fourth-round of the FA Cup over Championship side Luton Town which was his last managerial game in charge at Chelsea, Lampard was shown the exit door.
Werner, who Lampard recruited from RB Leipzig last summer, was guilty of squandering clear cut chances during the Englishman's time at the club.
He has now taken a portion of the responsibility for Lampard's dismissal.
The German striker told Sky Sports: "When you come here to play as a striker and be the man to score the goals, of course, I felt a little bit guilty that I missed so many chances.
"For the club, for the old manager but also for me because I want to score all the time and as much as I possibly can.
"Of course, if I'd scored four or five more goals maybe the old manager would still be here because we'd maybe have won two or three games more but you can't look too much into the past because there are too many games ahead of us."
