Ronaldinho delivers a three-word response to Kai Havertz after Chelsea star makes honest admission

Ronaldinho has thanked Kai Havertz after the Chelsea attacker confessed that he looked up to the Brazil star as a child. 

Due to his cleverness and dribbling prowess on the ball, the Brazilian is widely regarded as one of the greatest footballers of his period.

It’s no wonder that Havertz, a difficult ball player, looked up to Ronaldinho, who won the Ballon d’Or in 2005.

On a Twitter Q&A session, Havertz was asked, “Who did you look up to as a footballer growing up?” He replied, “Ronaldinho!”

The Brazilian and Barcelona icon then replied simply, “Thanks, my friend”.

If Chelsea can find a Havertz who can play at the same level that Ronaldinho did during his career, Thomas Tuchel will be overjoyed.

One thing Havertz has in common with Ronaldinho is that he is a man for big moments. 

Havertz scored the game-winning goal in the 2021 UEFA Champions League final and then repeated the feat the following year in the FIFA Club World Cup final.

Speaking to Chelsea’s official website earlier this year, Havertz said: “Naturally, I want to be able to show my qualities during such moments because everyone is watching. There’s probably also been important games where I did not perform well.

“But people seem to remember the games where I played well, where I scored. At the Club World Cup, it was a rather difficult game and, in the first 117 minutes, I didn’t play my best game. But nevertheless, people now remember the winning goal – the penalty.

“I simply try to stay calm during such important moments and just focus on myself and simply enjoy what I am doing. Otherwise, when you’re 35 years old one day, you may ask yourself: ‘Why didn’t I enjoy that moment more back then?’ or: ‘Why didn’t I stop and take a breath back when I took that penalty’ and thought: ‘Wow! Awesome, you’re standing here, and people are watching you, just enjoy this.’ That’s why I try to enjoy those moments as much as possible.”
