Bayern Munich maestro Thomas Muller has heaped praise on Chelsea forward Kai Havertz for his performances as the Blues’ frontman. Kai Havertz, who primarily played as a midfielder for Bayer Leverkusen, has emerged as a potent striking option for Thomas Tuchel this season.

The lanky forward is quick and intelligent in his movement, and has a knack for being in the right place at the right time. To top it off, the German possesses nerves of steel, rarely fluffing his lines when presented with a goalscoring opportunity.

Bayern’s Muller, who has made a career out of being versatile and adaptable, has lauded his young compatriot for turning up for Chelsea. Praising Havertz for asserting himself in a league as physical as the Premier League, the 32-year- old told BNN:

“Kai has played very well at Chelsea, especially up front. And he has been able to assert himself in the very physical Premier League.

“I’ll say this, you can put Kai up front almost anywhere and always have hope that he’ll make a great play.”


Havertz has comfortably outperformed the west London outfit’s natural center-forwards Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner this season. The 22- year-old has registered 11 goals and five assists across competitions this season, with five goals and an assist coming in his last six games.

If Havertz keeps this up, he should be one of the first names on Germany’s team sheet at the Qatar World Cup later this year.
