Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel in his message to Kai Havertz defended the player and his goalscoring form this season.
Havertz has scored two Premier League goals this campaign in 11 starts, and when asked whether he should take the weight off Mason Mount’s shoulders, Tuchel said it is not for the lack of effort.
“He is trying hard. We don’t need to tell him to score more because he is playing as a striker, a half-striker so he is in exactly where all players demand goals from themselves,” Tuchel said.
“All players are demanded to score and assist.
“He is still young and in a process of adapting. He has all the potential and character to be a top player for Chelsea but he is still growing and he is far from being ready. Like I said, he is super young. He is to grow into it. Let’s not be over excited when we have a test tomorrow so who knows.”
