Havertz speaks on his battle with coronavirus and road to full recovery

Havertz could do nothing but lie in his bed for 10 days after testing positive for the virus.

His body was hurting and it takes time to get back to your best physical shape even after testing negative.

He felt that he had 'never played football' before when he returned to training but the German international feels much better now.

"To be honest, it was very hard for me personally because I was having to stay for 10 days just in my bed and everything was hurting," Kai Havertz told Chelseafc.com, discussing his battle with the coronavirus.

"It was like a very bad ‘flu for me and so now I know it is very bad for people. Before, sometimes, I thought okay, it is not so bad but now I get it and I know, for example, for people who are older and people who had some illness before it can be very bad, so we all have to look out for each other.

"It hurt me in that time very much and I am a young human and for me it is not so bad, but when other people have it, now I know it can be very bad."

He continued: "It is very difficult when you do nothing for two weeks and then you start training again.

"You feel like you have never played football before and it took two or three weeks to get back to 100 per cent. Now I have played games from the start and I am feeling very good but of course, it takes a lot of time. Now I think I am very fit again and I can start to attack again."

The German is yet to show Chelsea fans his best version as he had yet another mediocre performance in the defeat against Everton.

However, it takes time to settle to a new league and we're sure that once Havertz is back to his full fitness, he will start proving to the world why the Blues paid over $90M for him in the summer.
