Following Kai Havertz’s remarkable achievements for the club over the previous several weeks, Graham Potter has voiced his position on the topic, and all members of the Chelsea board are in agreement regarding Havertz’s future.
Kai Havertz has put on outstanding performances for Graham Potter’s Chelsea squad lately, and the club’s board has unanimously decided on Havertz’s future.
The Chelsea board is reportedly in total agreement with Kai Havertz’s future at the club, especially in light of his outstanding displays in recent games while playing for Graham Potter. The Blues have made a remarkable turn around after a string of bad performances that placed pressure on Potter. Yet, the club’s environment has improved as a result of the team’s three straight victories.
Graham Potter supported Kai Havertz and continued to have faith in him despite the fact that he underperformed along with the rest of the team. Since then, Havertz has repaid Potter’s faith by scoring two important goals in the last two games. He converted the penalty that put Chelsea into the quarterfinals of the Champions League and added another goal against Leicester on Saturday.
Since Havertz’s current Chelsea deal is set to end in 2025, the team will soon need to make a decision regarding his long-term future. In order to earn a decent return on the £72 million they paid Bayer Leverkusen for him in 2020, they could either sell him or extend his contract.
The Chelsea board is “desperate” want Havertz to reach his potential at the club, according to journalist Simon Phillips. This might be a sign that the club hierarchy is inclined to extend his contract before the end of his current deal, if he enters that year.
“Despite his terrible performance, Potter has continued to support Kai Havertz and choose him, and Havertz has appreciated that. The Chelsea board and the hierarchy have long recognized something positive in Havertz and have wished for it to manifest itself, according to Phillips, who spoke to GiveMeSport.
Kai Havertz recently discussed his challenging time at Chelsea over the previous three months. Graham Potter’s club has had a bad run of form, which has left them in the middle of the league and facing the hard reality that they won’t be playing in Europe next season unless they turn things around in the final games of the campaign or win the Champions League this year.
“Our life is football. Of course, your life isn’t simple if you lose a game,” Havertz said. “I believe that everyone at home, including my partner, has experienced some trying times over the past few weeks and months.
“I believe she is content once more, and I am too. Having a rough day at work… you… You don’t feel well, but I won’t say that right now. In the game of football, we are under a lot of strain.
“We want to please the fans because if you don’t please them, you don’t have fun. Always, winning is the greatest. We may now enjoy a few days because we won again.
