Bayer Leverkusen player Jonathan Tah has leapt to the defence of Chelsea midfielder Kai Havertz and feels the criticism aimed at him is ‘nonsense’.

Havertz has netted just once in 18 Premier League appearances for the Blues since his big money move from Bayer Leverkusen but Tah insists the 21 year old will display his enormous qualities at Chelsea.

“I’ve been watching the Chelsea games regularly since then [the move],” Tah told Sport 1.

“It’s super interesting because Timo Werner and Antonio Rudiger also play there. I know what qualities Kai has.

“The game there is different than in Germany. There is a lot of talk in such phases: He has to do this and that because he has cost so and so much.

“But that’s nonsense. Give the boy time; then he will show his enormous qualities at Chelsea too. Kai will convince all the critics over there.”
