Has anyone ever wondered why some players who struggled for playing time at club levels are making waves for their counties? If there's one club who has exemplified this in recent times, then it is Chelsea football club. The blues have their top striker who has not scored a goal in his past five matches for the club, scored for Belgium against France last week before seeing Kai Havertz who himself has struggled for form lately scored for Germany again in their World cup qualifier.
Hansi Flick men were beaten the last time they met with North Macedonia; however, there was no doubt about their victory last night even before a ball was kicked because Germany have been so impressive of late. While many coaches of different clubs will be watching Germany playing last night, one manager who should learn a lot from how Germany plays to get the best out of his player is Thomas Tuchel.
Chelsea spent around £70million on Kai Havertz from Bayern Leverkusen a couple of transfer windows ago; however, the youngster has only been able to show glimpses of what he is capable of doing. Despite being in an impressive form towards the end of last season when he scored in the Champions League final, Havertz has struggled for form this season and has struggled for game time at club level this season also. Having seen how he performed for Germany tonight, we believe if Tuchel can learn from how he is used, then he can turn things around for the youngster and get the best out of him.
One major lesson I believe Tuchel should learn from his country man that could help him get the best out of Kai Havertz is to be playing an attacking brand of football. The former PSG manager, since he joined Chelsea has adopted the more conservative 3-4-3 formation, a system which didn't allow his attacking players to flourish. As seen tonight, if Tuchel can unleash the likes of Havertz and Lukaku in Chelsea's attack by playing an attacking Brand of football, then they might become unstoppable.
