Simon Rolfes: Havertz need time to fit in at Chelsea

Kai Havertz has all the characteristics to be “world-class” but was still going to take time to fit in at Chelsea, according to Bayer Leverkusen’s sporting director Simon Rolfes.

It has not been an easy start to life at Chelsea for Kai Havertz but Simon Rolfes has no doubt he can thrive in the Premier League.

“It’s always difficult if you change the country and a little bit of a different style. That’s the same if we sign players,” Rolfes told Stats Perform News.

“Some players need two days, some guys need half a year. For example, Moussa Diaby needs three-four months to adapt from France, although he was playing for PSG, to adapt to the Bundesliga.” 

“You have to have in mind when you sign players, that not everybody is directly from the first day there.” 

“I’ve followed Chelsea a little bit from a distance, but it’s not only Kai or Timo Werner struggling a little bit, it’s also the team – they expected more from the whole squad.” 

“That’s not so easy if it’s not working in the team and you come in as a new player. It’s much easier if the team is working and you step in your best position.” 

“That’s a process for Kai, to adapt to England and the Premier League. There is no doubt Kai is a fantastic player and has all the ability to play on the world-class level and although it’s probably not his best six months, there is no doubt in my opinion.”
