Chelsea striker Kai Havertz has named the four players who would make his perfect combined footballer.
The Germany international is nearing the end of his second season at Stamford Bridge and already the former Bayer Leverkusen player has enjoyed a memorable spell in London. Havertz scored the all-important goal last year Chelsea 1:0 Champions League final victory Manchester City in Porto. He also scored an extra-time penalty as Chelsea beat Palmeiras to their first Club World Cup title earlier this season.
This season, Havertz has struck 13 times in 44 games in all competitions for the Blues and is the club’s all-time leading scorer in all competitions.
The German arrived in the club’s record-breaking signing in 2020, before Romelu Lukaku was re-signed by Chelsea from Inter Milan earlier this season for a fee of £97.5million. Havertz, whose current goal tally in blue is 22 in 89 games, has developed a knack for scoring crucial goals for Thomas Tuchel’s side in important games.
In a recent interview, Havertz was tasked with developing his “perfect footballer” by combining the right foot, left foot, head and intelligence of any four players of his choosing. His selection wasn’t too surprising, naming four of the best in the world to make his list.

“It’s difficult. Of course, I think maybe Lionel Messi’s left foot, Neymar’s right foot and maybe Ronaldo’s head,” Havertz said Astro Supersport.
“The brain I would say maybe to De Bruyne, he is a very good player for me and I love watching him play. I think that’s very good and would be a very good combination as a player.”
Havertz was in action for Chelsea on Sunday afternoon but was unable to prevent the Tuchel team’s 1-0 defeat at Goodison Park evertonwho are themselves trying to avoid the first descent in over 70 years.
Brazilian Richarlison scored the only goal of the game in the opening games of the second half after winning the ball from Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta.
In a bad-tempered affair, Havertz found himself facing off on multiple occasions with Everton’s Yerry Mina and the defender was cautioned by Havertz when the German pushed him off the ball in the second half.
In the early hours of Sunday, a group of Everton fans set off fireworks outside Chelsea’s team hotel, with midfielder Jorginho admitting they woke him up.
