'What a player': Some Chelsea fans hail £140k-a-week star for his national team exhibition

Kai Havertz had Chelsea supporters signing from the roof tops following his performance for Germany last night.

Havertz scored in Die Mannschaft’s 3-0 victory over Iceland yesterday to kick start their World Cup qualifying campaign.

Followers of the Blues flocked onto social media to celebrate their young forward’s excellent display.


The talented 21-year-old topped off his 11th Germany cap with a well taken goal after just seven minutes.

It was the icing on what’s been a very sweet cake for Chelsea’s class act recently.

Thomas Tuchel’s arrival has injected new life into Havertz’s veins.

He now looks a completely different prospect to the one who languished under Frank Lampard.

Injuries have been an issue since his move from Bayer Leverkusen last summer.

But an inability to find a suitable position was both Havertz and Lampard’s downfall.

Thankfully, Tuchel took over just in time and as has managed to transform the German superstar’s fortunes.

This isn’t to say he is the finished article.

Other than goal he scored yesterday, Havertz hasn’t netted since Chelsea defeated Morecambe 4-0 on the 10th of January.

His barren Premier League spell stretches back to the 17th of October, where he netted his only English league goal to date in a 3-3 draw with Southampton.

Hopefully, Havertz’s latest exploits for his country can be rolled over into club matters.
