“You can’t rely on talent alone” – Thomas Tuchel sends strong warning to Chelsea midfielder
According to Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, who has urged Chelsea midfielder Kai Havertz not to rely on his endless talent and has urged the midfielder to work hard.
Havertz has struggled since arriving at Stamford Bridge in a £75million transfer this summer and has only found the net once in 17 Premier League appearances.
“What I feel from him is a very friendly, intelligent and open guy, with a lot of potential and we will push him,” said Tuchel.
“He seems to be like the guy that needs to be pushed, we will not stop it.
“For him, this league is perfect because he cannot rest. He has so much potential that he has to be challenged physically also, it is not enough that he can rely on his endless talent.
“In the end, the question is does he have this, can he show his teeth in the end when it gets tough and I was very happy on Wednesday, it was him that did almost the decisive header in the box against all the towers from Wolverhampton.
“It would have been a nice goal but he did not hesitate and that is what I want to see from him, the rest will come because Kai can be a huge, huge part of this club.”
