Kai Havertz has now commented on his time at Chelsea straight after making his Arsenal debut.
The German told Football Daily that even though last season was not a success, he is thankful for the enjoyable three years he had at Stamford Bridge.
Yesterday saw Havertz pretty ineffective after coming on at half-time during their first friendly against Nurnberg.
It was his first game since making the decision to leave Chelsea, with the Blues receiving a large fee for his services.
This came after a couple of seasons where he had been the main man up top. However, this coincided with him being extremely inconsistent in front of goal.
It is widely expected that Mikel Arteta will look to operate him from a deeper role, with the idea being that he will be alongside Martin Odegaard in the midfield.
Havertz makes Chelsea’s claim
Despite now playing for the Gunners, Havertz still had time to discuss his time at Stamford Bridge.
He said: “It was not the best season for Chelsea last year. I have to say that I’m always going to be thankful to the club, and the fans. I had a very nice three years. It was 100% the right step to go there.”
The Germany international will of course be remembered for his iconic goal in the Champions League final, with it being the only one of the game against Raheem Sterling’s Manchester City side.
However, an opportunity to play in his favored position looked set to be tough to come by this season, after a deal for Christopher Nkunku was finally announced.
With Joao Felix’s time at the club also not being extended. It looks as if there is a lot of faith in the Frenchman to perform next season.
