Kai Havertz has trolled Callum Hudson-Odoi on social media ahead of Manchester City clash.
The German midfielder has found his playing time-limited at Stamford Bridge. Moreover, he had to miss the club clashes after contracting Covid-19.
“Before he fell ill and turned in a positive test, I thought his form was fantastic,” Frank Lampard said last month.
“He played some really good stuff in the number eight role, the advanced midfield role and I was delighted for him. You could see he was enjoying it, but Covid cut that short.
“Long term, I have no concerns. In fact, I feel quite the opposite. He is going to be a huge player for this football club, in the Premier League, as he has all the attributes and attitude to be an absolutely top-class player for the league and in the world.
“That’s how highly I rate him and I think people that analyse him, it can be quick reactions at times involving price tags and so on.
“But I think we have to understand that some of the best players that have come to this country have found it quite hard for some time to get used to the Premier League and I think Kai has actually been very good.
“Covid has made it difficult for him but he is a top player and will be a top player for us.”
The Blues are set to face their Premier League opponents on Sunday, following their 1 – 1 draw with Aston Villa, while Havertz showed he was in good spirits by cracking a joke at his teammate Hudson-Odoi on social media.
The English professional posted a new year message on Instagram, with a caption: “Happy new year everyone!! Stay blessed, Stay healthy!!”
Havertz was quick to poke fun at the player’s showing off of his Mercedes vehicle, saying: “Yes you have a G class okey,”
