Kai Havertz is considered to be one of the best young talents in the world and Bayer Leverkusen‘s sporting director Rudi Voller has even upped it a level. The former German striker has described the 20-year-old attacking midfielder as the best player in Bayer Leverkusen’s history ahead of the club’s DFB Cup final against Bayern Munich on Saturday.
Leverkusen has a wide history talented players and their youth academy has produced some of the world’s finest footballers. Stars such as Michael Ballack, Ze Roberto, Toni Kroos, Arturo Vidal, Bernd Schneider and Bernd Schuster have all played for the club, but Voller feels Havertz tops the list.
“We’ve had many good players through the history of the club at Bayer Leverkusen, but Kai Havertz is the best of them all,” Völler told the DFB Cup final’s matchday programme magazine. Havertz has been in a superb form this season for Leverkusen, scoring 12 goals and providing 6 assists across all competitions.
