Thomas Tuchel has restricted Timo Werner from practicing how to score goals and compared the 25-year-old's situation in front of goal to dating, The Sun.
The German striker came under attack after missing a sitter during his country's shock defeat to North Macedonia in the World Cup qualifiers.
He also provided the assist to Mason Mount's goal in the Blues 5-2 loss to West Brom which he would have normally finished on his own
And Tuchel used the analogy of trying to date a lady to suggest that Werner should not force things.
The former Paris Saint-Germain boss said that it is better to give a woman space and let her ask you out.
"He misses the chance and everybody is passionate to talk about it, which is a bit annoying.
"It’s easy to point the finger to Timo, which I will not accept. I am happy he is back here because here he is protected.
"This guy scores since he’s five years old. It’s not the moment to even train extra.
"Yesterday I sent him in from training because he wanted to do some finishing with us. I said: ‘You don’t need that, your body and your brain knows how to score.’
"If a woman does not want to go out for dinner with you, you cannot force her.
"You can just step a little bit back, then maybe she will call you up. The goals will come.”
