GERMAN STAR KIA HAVERTZS POSITIVE DESPITE TOUGH START AT THE BRIDGE
Chelsea’s most expensive signing, Kai Havertz is feeling positive despite a tough start to his blues career. The former Bayer Leverkusen trainee has managed a solitary goal, sandwiched between two assists.
However, his progress in the team was halted after a positive Covid-19 test. The German has finally admitted that he now feels settled and anticipates a bright future for himself at Chelsea.
Kai Havertzs transfer from Germany to England hasn’t gone according to plan due to some unavoidable mitigating factors: his colossal price tag has weighed heavily on his feeble shoulder,
it must also be taken into account that Frank Lampard who played a pivotal role in him( Havertz) agreeing to a transfer to Chelsea was playing him out of position:
playing the German in a slightly deeper role with increased defensive responsible was not what even football neutrals had envisaged upon his arrival.
Thomas Tuchel’s appointment on a short-term basis has seen an upturn in his performance not until he was sidelined by an injury last month.
WHAT WAS SAID:
“It’s been a tough season,” Havertz said after Germany’s 1-0 win over Romania in Sunday’s 2022 World Cup qualifier. “I know that things haven’t been going smoothly.
“But I think that’s normal when you first go abroad. It takes half a year or longer to adjust.
“I think that things are going well right now so I don’t want to overthink those negative impressions from the past.
I am positive and hope that the next weeks will be every bit as good.”
Chelsea is fourth in the league with 51 points and hosts West Bromwich Albion on Saturday after the international break.
