‘Havertz is an ice man, he’s ready for Chelsea’ – Former Leverkusen boss Korjut hails ‘special’ talent


Kai Havertz Bayer Leverkusen 2019-20

Kai Havertz is ready for a big-money move to Chelsea, claims his former Bayer Leverkusen boss Tayfyn Korkut, who says the 21-year-old isan “ice man” with “special” ability.

Korkut is not surprised to see a player he once worked with at the Bundesliga giants attracting so much intention.

For him, Havertz has been destined to reach the top for some time, with the former Turkey international telling Sky Sports of a playmaker he coached at Leverkusen in 2017: “This is possibly the most special thing about him, his mental power.

“You will not see the difference in him whether he is playing against Ingolstadt or Real Madrid, whether he is playing to avoid relegation or win a championship. He will always plays the same and at a high level.

“Even at 17, he did not have ups and downs. It was not about the coach being brave, it was about the player. He gave me that feeling that he could play those big games and he could. He has this unbelievable mental strength. I do not know if it translates into English but he is like an ice man.

“When you watch him now, you cannot tell if he is under pressure. I don't know what he is feeling inside but he does not show it and that is an important quality if you want to be one of the best.

“Playing for big clubs is different. It is about mental toughness. There are a lot of nice young players out there. But to play for the biggest clubs. To play for Bayern Munich, Manchester United or Chelsea, you need to have something more than just talent. This boy has that.

“It is not about being able to shoot fantastically well or because he can play the final pass, even though he can do those things. It is because of these mental qualities. That is the difference.”

Havertz has been tipped to take another step up the footballing ladder for several years and Korkut thinks Chelsea will be getting quite the player if they are able to bring a long-running saga to a close.

He added: “The most important thing now is for him to play for a bigger club than Leverkusen but he is already fantastically prepared.

“He has played in the Champions League. He was the top player in the Bundesliga. He is ready to play for any team in the world. Improve? What can you improve? Sometimes it is best to leave players like they are.
