Havertz has had a tough first season at Chelsea following his big-under transfer from Bayer Leverkusen. He has now regained his marks, which saw him score the only winning goal of last month’s Champions League final in Portugal.
What Lothar Matthaus said
Speaking to Kicker, he said: “I compare him to Zinedine Zidane in terms of skills, technique and overall vision, and anticipation of a situation.
“Zidane didn’t look quick, but that’s when he hit the ball. Havertz can do it too. “
Regarding areas for improvement for Havertz, Matthaus added: “He could score more goals and improve in short movements with special training. He has a good eye, good ball control, good positional play, good technique.“Plus, Havertz plays smart and uses his body well. Havertz is on his way, but the nuances will decide if he will reach the top, if he will be a great player or just a very good one. “ Havertz will be in action against Hungary on Wednesday in their final Euro group game.
