"He has the elegance of Zidane": Assistant coach compares Liverpool and Manchester United target to Real Madrid legend

Kai Havertz has been compared to Zinedine Zidane by his assistant coach at Bayer Leverkusen, Marcel Daum.

The 20-year-old has been targeted by a number of European clubs, including Liverpool, Manchester United and Barcelona. He has shown an impressive game with his side, scoring 11 goals and providing 5 assists in the league competition this term. Speaking about Havertz, Daum has revealed he sees traits of Real Madrid and France legend Zidane in the German midfielder. He told talkSPORT.com: "Everyone is asking about Kai Havertz. If you see him play, it tells you everything. For me, he has the elegance of Zidane. If you see his movement, he’s very elegant, he’s always calm, he has great passing ability. What a lot of people don’t see, because we have the data and watch him every day, is that he’s pretty fast. That’s a big bonus. He’s a great player; he’s scoring goals, he’s great in the air, and he’s pretty fast. It’s up to him how far he can go. I can’t say he will be the best German player ever, but he has the talent and there are no limits. He’s displaying signs of Zidane."
