He helps me a lot’: Havertz explains why Kovacic is an underrated ‘hero’ for Chelsea

“One of the players that helps me a lot for example was Kova. I had from day one a very good relationship with him,” Kai Havertz said of Mateo Kovacic (via Si.com).

“He’s a different character of playing football. But I think we share the same understanding of football.

“Before the game, a very calm person and for me this is good sometimes to be next to somebody that is very calm.”

Havertz then added: “He is like a hero because he always wants the ball. Even when maybe we concede a goal he is always the first one to take the ball and in doing that he gives us a lot of confidence.

“He is very young and won three Champions League titles. He is a player that likes a lot of movement, is quick on the ball. It’s good for a team like us. It’s good to have someone like him at Chelsea.”

Kovacic did not play a lot at Real Madrid but being around such an elite squad does impact your game positively – last season he was very important for the Blues on their way to the Champions League title.

It’s great to see that Havertz has so much love for the player and for sure, the Croatian midfielder is a big part of the squad.
