Chelsea’s Kai Havertz labels Premier League games ‘very exhausting’

Havertz’s Chelsea stint

Kai Havertz’s short stint in England has been quite mixed so far.

The German was the Blues’ marquee summer signing, setting them back a whopping £71m.

Havertz had previously earned a name for himself as one of the brightest young prospects in Germany.

So when he arrived in England, there was an expectation that he would hit the ground running.

However, the 20-year-old’s first few games in the Premier League did not see Havertz reach the heights he was capable of producing at Bayer Leverkusen.

Havertz on the Premier League

There appear to be a number of reasons for this, one of which was Havertz had very little time with his new squad before making his Chelsea debut.

And another could well be that like many foreign players, Havertz needs some time to adapt to the all-action style of the English top-flight.

The German himself has recently been discussing his short stint in the Premier League and has picked out a number of differences between his new surroundings and the Bundesliga.

When speaking to Chelsea’s official website, Havertz stated that the intensity of the duels and the runs are much higher in the Premier League.

Havertz then went on to label Premier League games exhausting before stating that he feels like everybody in the English top-flight is at a very high level:

“The intensity in the duels and the runs is much higher. It’s a completely different league and the games are very exhausting.

“The Bundesliga isn’t worse but I noticed differences. It seems to me like there aren’t any average or bad players here – everybody is at a very high level.”
