With Havertz and Werner, Chelsea had two wickedly expensive German offensive forces in the summer. In England the question arises whether it has been profitable so far. Coach Lampard leaves no doubt.

ÜAbout the duel on Tuesday evening against FK Krasnodar (9 p.m., in the sports ticker of the WELT) it no longer needed the long explanations. The situation in Group E of the Champions League is clear: Chelsea FC is already qualified, the team from southern Russia can no longer advance to the next round of the competition.

Chelsea coach Frank Lampard was able to use the time to protect his two German players a little, the question of them dictated from his point of view. Lampard was asked what he thought of the two sinfully expensive Germans by now. Its shape is, well, not so stable. Havertz wouldn’t even have a permanent place in the starting XI.

So the question itself was whether the 53 million euros for Werner and the 100 million euros for Havertz, also paid this summer, seem to be profitable from Lampard’s point of view. So whether Werner’s eight goals (five assists) in 17 games speak for him or his many missed scoring chances would cloud that. And whether Havertz shouldn’t have to be a firmer and above all more powerful player in the starting line-up.

When Werner Lampard speaks of “love”

Lampard left no doubt that he was very satisfied with both. He praised her, almost effusively. But apparently out of deep conviction, starting with Werner. He is “not worried about Timo. He came into this league and immediately made a good impression. His speed, his direct manner, the things he creates for the team, the fact that he gets a lot of scoring chances ”.

The 24-year-old attacker has “many chances to score thanks to his explosive nature and his eye for being in the right place. And I love that. Timo will be a huge player for this club, ”said Lampard.

With Havertz he had to differentiate. The offensive player, who came from Leverkusen, was infected with the coronavirus at the beginning of November, and had reported in “Sport Bild” that it was “important that everyone understands that it’s not fun”.

Lampard now reported that the 21-year-old had “really strong corona symptoms, he was very sick and struggled for a while”. Therefore, it took about two weeks for him to be competitive again after his return.

“When he got sick, his form was fantastic and he did some really good things. He played as number eight and I was happy for him because you could see that he was enjoying it, “said Lampard.” In the long term, I’m absolutely not worried about Kai – on the contrary. I know he will be a fantastic player for this club in the Premier League. He has all the qualities, the personality, the attitude and he will be an absolutely first class player in the Premier League and in the world. “

That was his conclusion for both of them. Lampard spoke of “giant players”. From his point of view, he said again, there was no doubt.
