Chelsea won the 2021 Champions League by defeating Manchester City in the final. The London team was considered the one that did not win this year’s final, but Thomas Tuchel’s men had other plans, defeating City with a goal from Kai Havertz.
Germany’s Havertz, who scored on the night of the final, failed to control his emotions after the final victory and used the F word when giving a post-match interview to BT Sport. The incident occurred when Havertz was asked about his price at Chelsea Football Club.
A reporter of BT Sports questioned him “there was a lot of pressure on you, as Chelsea’s most expensive player, you paid for everything in one night…” to which Havertz responded by saying: “To be honest right now I [don’t] give a f*** on that, we won the f***ing Champions League!” The Blues signed Havertz for £89million from Bayer Leverkusen last summer.
Captain Cesar Azpilicueta joined the interview and shared a huge laugh when Havertz came over with the bachelors. Azpilicueta backed his teammate commenting, “Kai’s had a tough season but he’s got a tough mentality and this guy is going to be a superstar”.
“He is already and he’s given us the Champions League. He ran like crazy and that’s why he deserves this,” Cesar said.
However later Kai himself apologized for his words he delivered in excitement and couldn’t control his emotions. He tweeted: “Sorry for the swearing”.

Speaking on Champions League win Azpilicueta added, “This means a lot. I came here in 2012 after the Champions League win and of course, I wanted to repeat that. Tonight it’s just amazing. My family is here and it’s just a special day.”
Coach Thomas Tuchel was also on top following the win. Tuchel was quoted by AFP’s BT Sport as saying: “It was an incredibly tough fight, what a fight. Today they were determined to win it. We wanted to be a stone in his shoes. The effort was huge. We got through some tough moments and had a great defensive attitude.”
