Paul Merson feels sorry for under fire Chelsea star

Kai Havertz will become a special player for Chelsea.

The German playmaker joined the Blues in the summer from Bayer Leverkusen and has failed to live up to his £62million price tag and is desperate to make an impression under new manager Thomas Tuchel.

Merson told Sky Sports about Havertz’s struggles: ‘He’s 21 years old, he’s going to be a good player.

‘People can sit down with me and say he ain’t done anything but he will be special. He will be a special player.

‘He’s young, he’s come over, his confidence is shot. For me, I think the manager got it right the other night. Keep playing him in the hole.’

‘At the moment, he’s 21, he’s just come over to a country in lockdown. Even though he’s 21, he’s still got parents. If he’s having a bad time, you ring up your parents and tell them to come over for a couple of weeks, spend a bit of time with them.

‘Or he rings a couple of mates and says, “I’ll fly you over, just come over and stay with us”, but that isn’t happening.

‘He has a bad game or he’s out the team and he’s just got to go home and sit in an apartment and just stew.

‘He’s 21, he’s an absolute kid and I feel sorry for him.’
