Chelsea loanee Joao Felix has claimed that he is struggling to learn English due to his teacher being Kai Havertz.

He joked to ‘The Residency’ that the German being the one to teach him is why he is struggling with the language at his new side.

Felix is currently on loan at Stamford Bridge from Atletico Madrid, after seemingly not being the player Diego Simeone wanted to build his side around.

The Argentine could have already been proven right, with his side looking like they are going to finish runners up in La Liga this season.

The Portugal international meanwhile has divided opinion in West London since arriving. For all his nice play, it has been just three goals contributed since the move.

This has left supporters unsure as to whether the club should spend the money that will be required to bring him in this summer, especially if it comes at the expense of someone like Mason Mount.

Felix jokes at Havertz’s English

The England international has been the club’s player of the year for the past two seasons, however he looks set to leave this summer after a new contract isn’t looking likely to be agreed.

Relationships off the pitch seemingly have been good for the 23-year-old though. He has now claimed that Havertz has been the teammate teaching him the native language.

He said: “Kai Havertz! That’s why I am bad on it.”

Havertz will be hoping he is offered the opportunity to impress the new manager whenever they take over, after falling to set the world alight so far at the club.

It is likely to be Mauricio Pochettino who has that say this summer, with him widely expected to be the man to take over from Frank Lampard’s interim spell.
