The midfielder is just 18 years old but he is breaking records at the Biarena. And now has served the senior German national team for 4 matches.
Lothar Matteus could not hide his impression of the boy’s pace.
The former West Germany captain led his country to the 1990 World Cup by playing in midfield. Which also earned him a Ballon d’Or winner.
So if Matteus praises this star player It is therefore worth paying attention to.
“He’s a talented player,” Matteus, 60, said of Leverkusen’s Florian Wertz. via the Bundesliga website at the beginning of this year
“He will be the second Kai Havertz, he will follow in the footsteps of Havertz.”
“In the next few years We will see him playing for the German national team. And we will see him playing for the big ufabet teams in Europe.”
Sure, that’s a proper comparison.
Both Wertz and Havertz were both talented beyond their years. The latter is the youngest player of Leverkusen And is the youngest footballer to score goals before moving to Chelsea last year
Then Havertz scored the winning goal in the Champions League. The 2021 final against Manchester City and has made over 200 appearances at club level despite being just 22 years old.
Wertz broke Havertz’s youngest-ever record and also broke the record for youngest goalscorer. Leverkusen as well, and the history in the Arena would be destroyed by him a lot.
The Cologne academy trainee is just 18, but has already made four senior German caps and provided assists from the bench in both games against R. Mania and North Macedonia
Hansi Flick, the German national team coach, is a big fan of his. and sees this youngster as an important part of his modern team.
“He’s very smart, has a very strong technique. and finishes well,” said Flick.
“He’s a good player in everything. And we are very happy to have him in the team.”
Wertz’s start to the 2021-22 season has been a great start. And he has been involved in goals in each game played in both Germany and Europe.
Just seven games in the new Bundesliga season, the youngster has four goals and six assists, plus he netted in the Europa League as Leverkusen defeated Feren. Schvaros and Celtid as well.
For both club and national teams, he has averaged a direct goal involvement every 46 minutes since the start of the 2021-22 season.
