Matthaus: Tuchel can make Havertz & Werner a hit for Chelsea & Germany

Havertz and Werner moved to Stamford Bridge last summer for a combined fee of well over £100million, but they struggled early on.

The pair particularly found it hard to hit their stride under Frank Lampard as Chelsea struggled during the first half of the season.

The Blues’ form turned around, however, following the appointment of Tuchel, with Havertz and Werner profiting too.

The pair have both been named in Germany’s squad for Euro 2020, and Matthaus thinks the presence of Tuchel at Stamford Bridge will be a big help for their development.

“It is always difficult when you come from one country, one championship, to another,” Matthaus told Standard Sport.

“And the Premier League, you know it better than me, it is a special competition. You have more teams fighting for the title, another cup competition and you don’t have a break in the winter.

“Then Kai Havertz has come from a small city like Leverkusen to a big city like London. You play for a club who is famous worldwide and everything is bigger and bigger.
