Havertz gives classy response when asked about Chelsea crisis

Chelsea are going through one of the toughest periods of their history, having been placed under restrictions by the UK government.

But Kai Havertz, who scored the Blues’ winning goal against Newcastle, insists it’s fans and those people who work at the club who feel this the most.

“We – the players – are in a good situation, really, we feel bad for everyone else,” Kai told the BBC after the game.

“We know this situation is not all about football, there are a lot more important things than us. We try to put a smile on the faces.

“When you see the emotion that came out after this goal, it is what everyone needed today. We are very privileged to do our job, a lot of people in the world are feeling a lot worse than us.

“We are just try to do our job, be professional and give them a good feeling.”

Tuchel opens up on his Chelsea future amid departure rumours

Thomas Tuchel has been linked with a move away from Chelsea as the club operates under severe restrictions placed by the UK government.

But the German insists he’ll definitely finish this campaign at the Bridge, noting that he can’t see how the situation unfolds beyond that.

“We are just try to do our job, be professional and give them a good feeling.”

“Yes for sure, there’s no doubt I stay until the end of the season,” the boss told the press.

“You have to go day-by-day because the situation can change.”

No matter who buys Chelsea, they will probably be looking to keep Tuchel at the club at all costs, considering the success he has brought.

Tuchel’s contract with the Blues expires in 2024.
