Former Chelsea Star has Disappointing Grades on Havertz and Werner


Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, two record signings recently graded by former Blues star Robert Huth. Chelsea are struggling in the league table and the hope they conceive from the fans is above the normal line.

This is because of a series of signings Chelsea did last year. Frank Lampard had proposed a generation shift in Stamford Bridge and the cost of that was quite expensive.

The complete renovation in the attacking line has demanded a remarkable result and the team is struggling to make that out from the incoming. German attacking duo Timo Werner and Kai Havertz have been a key pair in the line up of Frank Lampard.

The attacking pair getting regular playing time under the English legend but yet to settle with the consistency. Three-time Premier League winner, former Chelsea star Robert Huth commented on both players recently, in an interview.

‘You just want to shake him!’- Huth on Havertz

Kai Havertz is just 21 and the player is already on the radar of big eyes of the game. The £72 million switch of Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen was an important move in his career and now he is widely employed as the attacking midfielder under Lampard.

Havertz featured in 16 league games this season and scored only once which was not satisfactory according to Huth. ‘It’s all well and good saying he needs to be the main guy but he’s at a big club and he needs to make that happen himself. Now is the time to shine.

‘I just don’t like his body language at all, he looks a bit lightweight. It’s his first year, but he looks like he’s not bothered at times. He loses the ball, gives it away and doesn’t work back. It is a difficult time to come in with no fans, but you just want to shake him, Huth continued.

Havertz has got a contract till 2025 in West London and the future is bright for the youngster in both club and national career. But this is a tough time for him as he is part of a transition stage in Chelsea.

Praise for Werner:

Timo Werner, the £50 million signing from RB Leipzig has a better campaign in Stamford Bridge this season. The centre-forward is quite impressive with the ball and attacking gestures but should find consistency with his form.

According to Huth, Werner should play in the middle or long wide. “He does get chances. He does get in positions, we have seen it before with strikers, he is in one of those phases where he needs a goal and his confidence builds,” he said. (Metro)

The 24-year-old Werner scored 9 goals from all competitions this season and actively contributing to the frontline. The factor of experience is there in his case and his position is in favour of stats in the scoresheet.

Both the players should find their role in the team and continue working hard. All Chelsea demands is silverware and now they are struggling to maintain the stand in the top four. The European stage is still ‘on’ for Frank Lampard and plenty of games in England.

The incomings should prove themselves and these signings are crucial in the future of Lampard also. The collective effort can win a better status for the Blues and the start was impressive for them. The top sides of England targeted those players and the final victory was of Chelsea in the transfer market.
