Chelsea midfielder Kai Havertz has admitted his first season in England has been tough.

The 21-year-old moved to Stamford Bridge from Bayer Leverkusen for £71million on a sizeable five-year deal in September 2020.

Havertz has scored five goals and contributed seven assists in his 32 matches in all competitions so far, but has failed to impress on a consistent basis, although he is getting more of a chance under new boss Thomas Tuchel.

While admitting things haven’t gone smoothly, Havertz insists it takes half a year or longer to adjust after moving abroad for the first time.

Havertz said as quoted by Daily Mail: “It’s been a tough season. I know things haven’t been going smoothly. But that’s normal when you first go abroad. It takes half a year or longer to adjust.

“Things are going well right now so I don’t want to overthink those negative impressions from the past. I am positive and hope the next weeks will be every bit as good.”
