'For €100m he must play, and he isn’t': Ex-Bayer boss


'For €100m he must play, and he isn’t': Ex-Bayer boss

Peter Bosz says that it's difficult for him to talk about the Premier League as every player takes a different time to adjust.

However, the Bayer Leverkusen boss suggests that he doesn't know where Lampard plans to play Kai Havertz.

Havertz has been protected in the media by Lampard but he needs to start scoring and creating goals, states Bosz.

"It’s difficult for me to say because I’ve never worked there [Premier League]. Some players take more time than others, in all leagues," Peter Bosz told the Athletic.

"As for Kai, I can see why Chelsea brought him in but I cannot yet see the exact idea Frank Lampard has for him.

"It’s really good that he protects him in the press, though. But in the end, you must deliver, you must score goals and make goals. For a €100 million transfer you must play, and he isn’t.

"Kai plays the piano, but Hakim is from the streets. If there’s a free-kick, he will just walk up and take it. He’s like that."

Peter Bosz, who has been Bayer Leverkusen's manager since 2018 played Kai Havertz largely as a false 9 or a second striker, floating in and around the box.

Meanwhile, Bosz also managed Hakim Ziyech back in 2016/17 at Ajax when the Dutch side reached the Europa League final.
