Chelsea midfielder, Kai Havertz in the Champions League final has come out to say people expected him to be the new Ronaldo when he joined the EPL. He recently revealed that the pressure was really intense when he first joined the Blues.
According to him, people definitely expected a lot from him too soon, and he felt a completely different pressure than when he was at Leverkusen.
Havertz added that he was pleased to have ended the season with his goal in the Champions League final because that showed fans what he can do.
His words, “People expect you to be the new Cristiano Ronaldo,”
“But it won’t be that fast, everything is new and I really didn’t play my best football at the beginning.”
“I felt a completely different pressure than before in Leverkusen.”
“I’m glad that I was able to end the season with this goal in the Champions League final,”
“The goal was important for the history of the club, but it was important to me to have also done very well personally.”
On Euro 2020, “We’re with the national team, we have different processes and different goals here,”
“Of course, this title gives me tailwind and a lot of self-confidence, but there’s no point in feeling like a Champions League winner if you screw up the European Championship afterwards.”
