"He’s only done half of what he’s capable of doing" - Dietmar Hamann lavishes praise on Chelsea star


Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann has heaped praise on Chelsea midfielder Kai Havertz. The German has played a vital role in the Blues winning the Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup, scoring the winner on both occasions.

The 48-year-old has compared Havertz to Steven Gerrard but believes is capable of achieving even more at Stamford Bridge. Speaking to Genting Casino , Hamann said:

“The one player who’s done well and of course scored in the Champions League final is Kai Havertz, but I still think he’s only done half of what he’s capable of doing because I think he’s such a good player. Sometimes I feel he’s held back, or he doesn’t know how good he is, he’s an outstanding player."

he added “He’s obviously a different type of player to [Steven] Gerrard, but he’s a player who’s quick, not as quick as Stevie, but he’s very smart with his runs. He’s a player who can decide a game in a flash.”

Kai Havertz joined Chelsea from Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2020 for a fee of around £72 million. The 22-year-old midfielder has already become a fan favorite following his heroics, which has led to the the Blues winning trophies under Thomas Tuchel.

As things stand, Havertz has contributed seven goals and four assists in 31 appearances for the Blues across all competitions.

Kai Havertz also scored the first goal in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Lille in the first leg of their Round of 16 clash in the Champions League. The result has put the Blues in a commanding position to make it through to the quarter-finals of the tournament.
