Crazy Ball – Kai Havertz has been criticized by Steve Nicol for not playing well for Chelsea and the German national team.
The 21-year-old got off to a mixed start in his Chelsea career where he scored a hat-trick against Barnsley in the Carabao Cup. However, he hasn't made a significant contribution to the Blues' four matches in the 2020/21 Premier League.
Meanwhile, with the German national team, Kai Havertz only played 89 minutes when he played 3-3 against Turkey on Thursday (8/10) in the morning WIB. In that match, Joachim Low pulled out and brought in Nadiem Amiri.
Despite facing Turkey, he made two assists, but Steve Nicol believes that the player Chelsea bought from Bayer Leverkusen in the transfer market this summer has not fully performed well at club level and the German national team.
Talk to ESPN, The former Liverpool player said Kai Havertz has been looking weird lately with his performance. According to him, he has not consistently played against Turkey and so has at Chelsea.
While in international matches he did provide two assists, but for Steve Nicol his game was still chaotic. This, of course, is not what is expected of a player who is brought in by Chelsea with a large amount of money.
For information, of the four Premier League matches the Blues have played, the new player only provides 1 assist. On the other hand, Kai Havertz was only able to bring his team to two wins each against Brighton and Crystal Palace.
Meanwhile, last season when he played for Bayer Leverkusen the player played in 30 matches in the Bundesliga, packing 12 goals and 6 assists.
Whereas in the Europa League, from 5 matches he managed to score 4 goals and in the DFB Pokal event, Kai Havertz was able to score 2 goals in 5 matches. Can Havertz show consistency in playing in the next match?
