Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has come out to reveal how he motivated Kai Havertz with a strange analogy about his wife. This is coming after his struggles at the club, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he simply told Havertz that it was very hard to conquer his wife before she agreed to date him, but it happened eventually and the relationship blossomed ever since.
Arteta added that same can be the fate of Kai’s career if he is consistent with putting in the work.
His words, “I said to Havertz: ‘Things are hard at the beginning. When I met my wife, at the beginning it was hard to conquer her. It was hard, I had to try and message her, and go, and go. And at the end when she says: ‘yes, we can be together…’ it’s beautiful’.”
Kai Lukas Havertz (born 11 June 1999) is a German professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder or forward for Premier League club Arsenal and the Germany national team.
Having graduated from Bayer Leverkusen’s youth academy in 2016, Havertz made his senior debut with the club at the same year. Upon making his debut, Havertz became the club’s youngest-ever debutant in the Bundesliga, and he became their youngest-ever goalscorer when he scored his first goal the following year. He is also the youngest player to reach the milestones of 50 and 100 league appearances in the German top flight.
Havertz was born in Aachen, North Rhine-Westphalia. He grew up in Mariadorf, a district of Alsdorf. Later, the family moved to Aachen. His father Ralf is a policeman and his mother Anne is a lawyer.
After appearing for Germany at various youth levels, Havertz made his senior international debut in September 2018, becoming the first player born in 1999 to represent the national team. He represented Germany at UEFA Euro 2020 and the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
