Berlin (dpa) – Footballer Kai Havertz is hoping for some kind of hello-wake effect after the 6-0 debacle of the DFB squad against Spain.
“I think a young team like we have now will learn a lot from a 6-0 draw. We will be back, it will be one hundred percent. We have tremendous quality in the team,” said the 21.-year from Chelsea in an interview with Sky.
At the same time, Havertz welcomed the decision of national coach Joachim Löw to lead the team to the EM 2021 with a new motivation. “In the end, however, we are very happy with the coach and we have a lot to do in the future. I appeal to the patience of both the media and the fans,” said the former Leverkusen player.
Havertz held back a possible return of national players Thomas Müller, Mats Hummels and Jérôme Boateng, who were eliminated by Löw. “For me, these are exceptional players who have performed very well for the team. We cannot decide that, the national coach must do that,” said the young star, who has played ten full international matches so far: “It would be wrong if I would say something about it right away. “
