Kai Havertz returned date finally confirmed by Tuchel

Kai Havertz made a big money move from Bayer Leverkusen to Chelsea during the summer transfer window, but the German international has yet to reach his best heights in the Chelsea colours.

The 21-year-old has struggled to cope with the pace and intensity of the English game, with injuries and the impact of Covid-19 also playing its toll.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has vowed to revive the fortunes of the talented midfielder, and he believes that Kai Havertz will be back to his best soon.

“I am pretty sure we will see [the Leverkusen version of Kai Havertz soon]. What we know is there is all this potential in him and he can show it on the pitch,” Thomas Tuchel told the media ahead of our Newcastle clash.

“For every transfer, change of club, every player is different. Some players need more time to adapt, sometimes it is a process. All we can do is push him, support him and give him what he needs.

“He had a good start with us, good matches and I have a feeling that he is a guy who is clear, self-aware, humble and very talented. There are no doubts he will show this.

“Hopefully he can come back in the next days because I am confident he can have a big impact.”
