The German may have just told his boss of his desire to start every game for Chelsea ahead of the new season
Kai Havertz provided the most important goal of the just concluded season for Chelsea when he rounded Ederson to score the only goal of the UEFA Champions League final against Manchester City.
Having earlier on struggled to fit in, the 21-year-old saw his fate at the club taking a quick turn amid Thomas Tuchel‘s arrival.
Chelsea decided it was time to hand former manager, Frank Lampard the big news early this year after seeing him struggle to maintain the pace he set back in 2020 when Chelsea went months unbeaten.
Coupled with the fact that he couldn’t easily spot the best roles for the new players the club spent so much money to land.

This of course was Chelsea’s best decision of the year, handing the mantle to Thomas Tuchel who didn’t only bring home the UEFA Champions League but also helped find the perfect spot for Kai Havertz.
But just as we know, the former PSG boss doesn’t have permanent starting squad as he is always rotating between squad members.
This has many times raised controversial rumors of players forcing for exit. Players like Tammy Abraham who is yet to start a game since returning from his injury after the international break.
In reaction to this, Kai Havertz has revealed of how he wished he started every game in the just concluded campaign.
“Of course I want to start, but sometimes your own ego has to take a back seat,” the former Bayer Leverkusen talisman who is now on International duty with Germany said.
“The team is always the most important. For me and Timo at Chelsea, maybe we weren’t successful on a personal level. But as a team, we were very successful.”
