Germany legend Lothar Matthaus compared Chelsea midfielder Kai Havertz to Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane.

Addressing Havertz’s game, Germany legend Lothar Matthaus told Kicker: “I compare him to Zinedine Zidane in terms of skills, technique and overview and anticipating a situation.

“Zidane didn’t seem quick, but it was when he hit the ball. Havertz can do that too.

“He (Havertz) could score more goals and improve himself in the short movements with special training.

“He has a good eye, good ball control, good positional play, fine technique. In addition, Havertz plays intelligently and uses his body well.

“Havertz is on the way, but nuances will decide whether he will make it to the top, whether he will be an excellent player or just a very good one.”

The Chelsea Champions League final hero has taken his fine form from the end of last season into the Euros as he has been impressive so far for Germany.
