secure their second Champions League title on May 29, as the Blues managed to defeat

with a single goal from the 22-year-old German midfielder in the final round of the competition.

Havertz has now spoken to Chelsea’s

official website

about his Champions League finale goal, saying he was afraid he would become a meme if he didn’t score.

“These moments, they are always the worst, because you think if I miss this one then of course you are on YouTube, on Instagram and in every meme, so I was just thinking: ‘Please, I have to score now’,”

Havertz said.

“Then, of course, it happened and then these are the best moments in football.”

The Germany international, who joined Chelsea from Bayer Leverkusen last summer, went on to talk about how he adapted himself to the English football.

“Of course you get used to it when you play some games, when you have some matches, when you are here in England for some months,”

he continued.

“It’s a different type of football, but I think you get used to it and it was the same for me. After six months it was easier for me and then I settled in very well.

“I feel very good on the pitch and you are more relaxed on the pitch to play. Then, of course, it was getting a little bit better and now I’m used to it and I’m feeling very good.
