What is Flick planning on debut?
Havertz dreams of a new DFB role
Kai Havertz will also be part of the permanent staff under the new national soccer coach Hansi Flick. Just in which position? There are rumors that the Chelsea player could be used as a center forward in the future. A role that the 22-year-old would be very supportive of.
Offensive ace Kai Havertz is open to the alleged plans of the new national soccer coach Hansi Flick for the star of the Champions League winner Chelsea FC in the national team as a central striker. “That would be a position that I would like,” the 22-year-old told the “Bild” newspaper: “I like the position as a center forward in the box, in the sixteen: pushing the front aggressively, scoring goals.”
In his predilection for such a role, Havertz relies on experiences he has already gained at Bayer Leverkusen and last season with the Blues: “At Leverkusen I have already played as a central striker, now one time or another at Chelsea.”
Havertz does not want to anticipate Flick’s decisions before the first games under the successor to world champion coach Joachim Löw. “I don’t know yet how Hansi Flick will line up. I’m really looking forward to the first course at the end of August, beginning of September. I don’t see any problem in this position,” said the native of Aachen with a view to the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Liechtenstein ( September 2 in St. Gallen), Armenia (September 5 in Stuttgart) and Iceland (September 8 in Reykjavik).
At the club level, Havertz sees his club and the entire Premier League at a clear advantage over the European competition in view of the bubbling billions in revenue. “Financially you can talk about it,” the 18-time national player confirmed ever stronger impressions that the Premier League depends on the rivals from the continent: “When you talk about the sums that are being spent, you can say: England has the greatest strength, is the strongest and most attractive league. “
Nevertheless, Havertz expects the German industry leader Bayern Munich to be among the title contenders in addition to the top English teams in the Champions League: “There are strong teams all over Europe, in the Bundesliga of course FC Bayern first and foremost. They are always dangerous. Bayern remains a big favorite. Never copy it. “
