(Video): “I loved him as a player” – The Chelsea star who inspired a young Kai Havertz

Kai Havertz is a goalscoring midfielder, just like his boss Frank Lampard was in his time on the pitch.

In his first press conference as a Chelsea player, he name checked the club legend as a reference point of his as a child:

“I loved him as a player… He was always a big player that I know from watching the Premier League as a kid.”

Let’s hope that their similarities mean Havertz can learn a lot from his manager, and that in return he can win plenty of games for his new mentor.
