Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel has labeled the playing style of Kai Havertz as unique and also appreciated his current form. This season in all competition the 22-year-old has already made 20 appearances netting four goals and providing three assists.
In recent weeks Chelsea has been sub-par but despite the drop in standards Havertz has been one of the positives for Tuchel. Admitting being happy with Kai’s performance, Tuchel said to the official Chelsea website: “He has a unique style. He is getting technically strong, but he is getting more and more physical using his body having a lot of sprints. Being reliable off the ball.
“He is in a good place. Even in a match like Watford where everybody was a bit struggling, he had a good performance. So, I am happy with him in the moment.” Tuchel added on his best position: “I think actually he can be whatever he is on any position, and I do not think that his behaviour is so much different if he plays as a high number 10 or as a nine.
“I just want him to do what he is doing on the best level. He has fantastic potential, and he is still super young. I think adaption happens anyway because the league and opponents and the club where he is we demand it. So it will happen on a very natural and healthy level, and he has the quality to adopt different positions and his style.”
