Despite claiming otherwise, it would appear Chelsea’s new star, Kai Havertz, has taken aim at the quality of players in the Bundesliga in a roundabout way.
Although he was keen to state that he did not feel that the German top-flight was any worse than England’s top division – and a top German football campaign looks set to in order for bettors and they would be wise to head over to the best betting site in Nigeria 2020 for all their needs – he did state that he felt there were no average or bad players in the league. That seems a slight dig at some of the clubs or his colleagues back in Germany.
The Germany international joined the Blues in a deal worth around £89 million in the summer and has gone on to make a handful of appearances for Frank Lampard’s side so far.
There are some suggestions that he has struggled to make the desired impact since being at Stamford Bridge so far, although that could quite simply be down to a lack of a pre-season or a new environment. Bettors can make an instant impact when they place wagers on the action, though, when they check out this Melbet Review in Nigeria.
The 21-year-old appears to suggest that the new environment has made things a little tougher, as he feels that the standard of the Premier League is slightly different compared to the Bundesliga he featured in last season.
Havertz told Chelsea’s official website: “The Bundesliga isn’t worse but I noticed differences. It seems to me like there aren’t any average or bad players here – everybody is at a very high level.”
Indeed, he got up and running for Chelsea in the Carabao Cup when he bagged himself a hat-trick, although his Premier League performances have seen him struggle. The 21-year-old has managed to provide just one assist – a crucial goal in their 3-3 comeback against a West Bromwich Albion side many would have fancied the Blues to beat before the first 45 minutes had elapsed.
Perhaps his difficulties have been because of the way that Lampard has used him in the team, as Havertz has had to play in positions out wide and in the middle, thus not getting any consistency. It would not be a surprise to see him deployed as a Number 10 in future, though, with both Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic nearing a return.
Whilst the Bundesliga might miss a player of his talent – as he continues to show for the Germany National side just why he thrived for Bayer Leverkusen and had a number of clubs chasing him for his signature – those ‘average and bad players’ he spoke about will unlikely miss him, whoever they are.
