Kai Havertz has admitted that his move to Chelsea was 'the best decision' as he fulfilled his 'childhood dream' of winning trophies.

The German shared a strong relationship with his former Chelsea head coach, scoring the winner in the Champions League final against Manchester City in 2021.

Havertz was then preferred to club-record signing Romelu Lukaku the following season before the Belgian was allowed to leave on loan this summer, with Tuchel putting his faith in Havertz.

However, after three losses so far this season, Tuchel was dimsissed earlier in September, with Chelsea stating that the reason for this was not due to the on-the-field performances.

Graham Potter has since replaced Tuchel, with Havertz keen to prove himself under the 47-year-old.

Having arrived from Bayer Leverkusen back in 2020, Havertz has already lifted the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup during his time at Stamford Bridge and will no doubt be looking to add to his trophy haul.

The forward has now admitted to German press that the decision to move to Chelsea was the best that he could have made, having already fulfilled a childhood dream of his.

Speaking to Kicker, he said: “Moving to Chelsea was the best thing I could have done.


“In these two years, I have fulfilled my childhood dream.

“It was very good for me to get out of Germany, to experience something new, to adopt the way of playing in England.

“It’s very different from the ones I got to know and love when I was young and turned professional at Leverkusen.

“I am really enjoying it and I feel like I have made a big leap forward in England.”

Havertz will be hoping that he can continued to perform at Chelsea, with there much competition in attack.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang arrived on Deadline Day to provide immediate competition, with Havertz preferred in a new role in Potter's first match.

The German played in behind Aubameyang and he could be utilisedhere , much like he was during his time in the Bundesliga.

It remains to be seen as to whether Chelsea can turn their form around to win more trophies as Havertz looks ahead to the future in blue.
