Chelsea’s new signing Kai Havertz has revealed how Chelsea manager Frank Lampard positively influenced his decision to join Chelsea.

The 21-year-old made this known during his first ever interview with Chelsea TV.

“Of course he (Lampard) had a big impact on my decision because I loved him as a player and watched him very often, and I think I can learn from him now he is a manager as well,” Havertz told Chelsea website.

“I think he is a very humble person and a great guy and I can’t wait to play with him and learn from him. He was very offensive like me and he loves to score goals, and I love to score goals as well so I think he will help me a lot in my position.

“Also maybe on the things that I can improve and I can’t wait to work with him.”

The Germany international joined Chelsea on a 5-year deal from Bundesliga side, Bayer Leverkusen for £62m rising to £70m.
