Not many positive things have been said about Kai Havertz since he made his debut for Chelsea. The 21-year-old German hasn’t had it easy from the English press, and many already see the highly rated German as a flop in the Premier League.

However, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has stuck his guns for the £70m signing and has decided to back him in front of the media.

While Havertz has been criticised for not trying enough in games, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has hailed his desire and also the grounds he cover on the pitch.

“From working with Kai, desire is absolutely not any part of the issue,” said Lampard.

“He has an absolute clear talent. He has a style where if things aren’t coming off people want to jump on, I have seen that in some amazing players over the years. But let me tell you, his desire, the ground he covers in games, is big. The numbers and the data are big.

“Is his confidence at this minute as right as it can be or will be? No, because he’s having a tough moment, as are other members of the squad.”
