ENGLAND – Arsenal legend, Paul Merson has criticized Chelsea midfielder, Kai Havertz, ahead of the Blues’ Premier League with West Ham United on Monday.
Merson also compared Havertz with Mesut Ozil.
According to him, Havertz’s body language is doing him no favours presently at Chelsea, and just like Ozil, doesn’t look bothered with the defensive side of the game.
“Kai Havertz looks like Mesut Ozil at the moment,” Merson told the Daily Star.
“A major talent, but when he loses the ball, he doesn’t try to win it back.
“Ozil used to get a major stick because he didn’t always seem interested. But Havertz looks like that sometimes now as well.
“He looks like he’s out of his depth or doesn’t really want to be here. But you’ve to remember this is a young player who’s come to a different country.”
