Chelsea's forward Havertz opens up on pressure in debut season

Kai Havertz has opened up on the pressure he felt when he joined Chelsea last year. 

Havertz signed gor Chelsea from RB Leipzig for a reported fee of £71m, making him the club's most expensive player, and with a big price tag comes big expectations. The forward has now opened up about what pressure was like to experience he became a Blue. 

"People expect you to be the new Cristiano Ronaldo. But it won't be that fast, everything is new and I really didn't play my best football at the beginning," Havertz told Suddeutsche Zeitung. 

"I felt a completely different pressure than before in Leverkusen."

Havertz scored the only goal as Chelsea beat Manchester City in the finals of the Champions League. 

"I'm glad that I was able to end the season with this goal in the Champions League final."

"The goal was important for the history of the club, but it was important to me to have also done very well personally."

Havertz is currently with the national team Germany in the Euro 2020 tournament.
