Havertz: My best position? everyone should know by now what I can do
Chelsea forward Kai Havertz has hit out at critics over his lack of a regular position and insists that he does not have to nail down a specific position.
Havertz who has been playing as both a center forward and attacking midfielder since joining Chelsea in 2020 says it doesn't matter what position he plays in as long as he scores goals.
The 23-year-old Havertz scored his third goal of the season against Red Bull Salzburg on Tuesday and after the game was asked what is his best position.
“After three years [at Chelsea], everyone should know by now what I can do, that I'm flexible up front and I can play a lot of different positions,”
he told reports.
“Of course, sometimes it's good to play in different positions and sometimes it's bad, but in general I'm an offensive player. I like to be in the box. I like to score goals. I like to arrive in the box often and I don't care if I'm there as a number nine or a number 10.
“If I'm in the box, I'm there to score goals and that's it.”
Havertz also talked about working with Graham Potter who replaced Thomas Tuchel as Chelsea's manager.
“I've only worked with him for a few weeks, but he is a very, very good coach and time will tell how far we can go in the Champions League – hopefully a long way.”
Chelsea is in fourth place in the Premier League, and seven points behind leaders Arsenal. They will face Potter's former team, Brighton, on Saturday.
