Frank Leboeuf has been far from impressed with Kai Havertz’s start to life at Chelsea admitting he is unconvinced by the £72m man.
Regarded as one of the finest young players in the game right now, we beat off some heavy competition over the summer in order to get a transfer deal done for Havertz, spending £72 million in the process.
The Germany international has been played in a multitude of positions; on the wing, as false nine and No.10, with the latter his self-proclaimed favoured role, but so far he has failed to impress the fans like many had hoped he would do by now.
But despite scoring in the Premier League at the weekend, Leboeuf has been far from impressed with Kai Havertz’s start to life, Speaking on ESPN FC after the game, Leboeuf said: “I’m not convinced about Havertz, I’m not that optimistic, I’m very pleased with Werner, he’s a real satisfaction.
“Thiago Silva should have been back because it’s crucial for Chelsea to have a real leader at the back and that’s the main problem.
“They all have to work hard physically to make sure they can play together and be stronger together.”
He continued: “I’m not convinced at all about Chelsea right now, It’s like they don’t know each other, they’re not fit enough, I’m very worried.
“I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt because I don’t know what they’re worth, but, really, if they keep on performing like that, for sure they’re not going to finish in the top four.”
The lad needs time to adapt and will be a massive player for us in the coming months, we are sure of it
