The Blues goalkeeper works daily with the two Germans and expects them to perform at his highest next season.
Edouard Mendy believes Chelsea will see ‘the best of’ Timo Werner and Kai Havertz next season after the German strikers enjoyed a first season of adaptation at Stamford Bridge. Much was expected of this summer’s two most important recruits as they traveled to west London from London RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen during the summer of 2020, but no one has lived up to the price invested in it.
There were glimpses of genius and a strange cause for optimism, but consistency may prove to be much more present in the 2021-2022 season. Chelsea goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy gave an interview on the official website of the London club, mentioning the case of the two German offensive players: ” They are very good players. They are young players and this is the first time they are moving to another country. “
“I think they took a few months to adapt and understand the Premier League, but I see them every day and I know how good they are. I love them. They have shown their qualities on the field. Next season 100% we get the best from Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. Even this year, we appreciated their good performance levels and they are important to us, ”added the former Stade Rennais goalkeeper.
How many goals have Werner and Havertz scored?
Havertz, which was used as a false nine by Thomas Tuchel In recent weeks, they have scored a slash as Chelsea beat rivals Fulham 2-0 in their last Premier League outing. Werner was behind one of those goals and is one of five players in England to have passed the ten goals and ten assists milestone this season. The 24-year-old has found the target 11 times, while Havertz now has eight goals to his name.
Havertz and Werner hope to start when Chelsea host Real Madrid on Wednesday in the second round of their Champions League semi-final. Mendy added: “It is not easy to switch between the two Champions League matches with a Premier League game in the middle, but we did. “
“The coach knows how good he is hard to keep focus in the match against Fulham but we started well even though they pushed us hard. We remained strong together and were clinical in the counterattack. To be honest, we won against Fulham and it was a tough match, but now we have to recover and focus on the Real Madrid game. It’s a semi-final and we have not won anything. We have to be ready for this match, ”concluded Edouard Mendy.
