In a recent press conference leading up to Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Manchester United, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta addressed concerns about the performance of the club’s summer signing, Kai Havertz. Arteta left no room for doubt, stating firmly that he has no intentions of benching the German midfielder.
Kai Havertz’s arrival at Arsenal came with high expectations following a £65 million transfer from Chelsea this summer. However, in his first four matches for the Gunners, Havertz has yet to score a goal or provide an assist, raising questions among fans about his form and impact on the team.
Arteta, known for his commitment to nurturing talent, took the opportunity to express his admiration for Havertz during the press conference. He highlighted Havertz’s outstanding work rate and the valuable contributions he makes to the team, even beyond scoring and assisting.
“I’ll tell you what I feel about him, that I love him, and I see his qualities every day in training,” Arteta emphasized. “His work rate is excellent, and many of the things he does at the front of the team are exceptional, especially the visual aspects.”
Arteta also made a passionate appeal to Arsenal fans, urging them to show their support for Kai Havertz just as they do for any other Arsenal player. He firmly believes that it’s only a matter of time before Havertz finds his goal-scoring form and becomes a key asset for the team.
The Arsenal manager’s unwavering support for Kai Havertz sends a clear message that the club is committed to nurturing the young talent and helping him reach his full potential. Arsenal fans will undoubtedly be eagerly awaiting Havertz’s breakthrough moment, confident in Arteta’s belief in the player’s abilities.
