Frankfurt/Main (dpa) – National soccer player Kai Havertz is ambivalent about his versatility in the offensive of the national soccer team. This could be more of a blessing than a curse for the DFB team, “for me personally sometimes not”.
The 23-year-old Chelsea FC professional will be in various positions before the World Cup in Qatar, sometimes as a centre-forward, sometimes as a tenth or even on the right offensive side.
He could “make friends with any position,” said Havertz in the “kicker” interview before the Nations League games against Hungary and England . In the end, the most important thing is “what is best for the team,” he emphasized.
He rates his move from Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen to the Premier League to Chelsea two years ago as “the best thing I could have done”. He won the Champions League with Chelsea in his first season and scored the winning goal in the final against Manchester City. “In these two years I have fulfilled a childhood dream.” It was very good for him to get out of Germany. He believes that as a footballer “in England I have made a big leap forward”.
