Kai Havertz' Genius 'Sh*thousery' During Chelsea Vs Real Madrid Even Surprised Sergio Ramos

Kai Havertz capped off a fine Champions League semi-final performance with a unique bit of sh*thousery last night.

Havertz was involved in the opener from Timo Werner when his dinked effort kissed the crossbar and dropped down for his compatriot to head home into an open goal.

And he was one of Chelsea's top performers on the night, regularly rinsing Real players with his speed, dribbling and agility in attack.

But he also combined that with a bit of gamesmanship late on. After Chelsea gave away a free-kick, Havertz was not letting Real take it quickly.

He crouched down as if he was going to pick the ball up but instead kicked it away in the same motion. It was one of the oldest tricks in the book and one that Real skipper Sergio Ramos would have been proud of. Subtle but superb nonetheless.

Havertz arrived at Chelsea in a £71 million deal from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer but struggled to get going in his early months, having not been helped by injury issues and contracting coronavirus.

He's been revitalised under Thomas Tuchel, however and now looks to be well and truly finding his feet in West London.

Last night was unquestionably his best performance in a Blues shirt and it drew huge praise from Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, who compared him to former teammate Dimitar Berbatov.

Speaking on BT Sport, as per Metro, Ferdinand said: "He [Havertz] reminds me of Berbatov, a player I played with at Manchester United. He's got that lazy swagger at times and that nonchalance about him.

'The guy is just so smooth man. The game doesn't quicken up around him. The game slows down to his pace, he gets things done. I think he will grow into a really important player for Chelsea."
