When German forward Kai Havertz scored the Champions League-winning goal for Chelsea against Manchester City on Saturday, he declared he had “worked 15 years” for the moment. Chelsea won their second European title nine years after defeating Bayern Munich in the final. Havertz’s goal in the 42nd minute was his first for the club in the Champions League. “I’m at a loss for words; I’ve been waiting a long time.” Havertz, 21, told BT Sport, “I’ve worked 15 years for this moment, and I’m amazed.”

Cesar Azpilicueta, Chelsea’s captain, praised the youthful attacker.

“Havertz’s attitude is incredible; this guy is going to be a superstar; he ran like a maniac, which is why he deserves this.”

“After the Champions League victory in 2012, I moved here. I aspired to replicate my Champions League triumph. It’s incredible. My family has arrived. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime occasion.”

N’Golo Kante, the French midfielder who was named man of the match for his relentless effort for Chelsea, expressed his “pleasure and pleasure” after receiving the award.

“It’s incredible,” Kante told French station RMC Sport. “It’s the consequence of a lot of works and challenges during the season, but in the end, it’s the labour of a full squad.”

“Today, we struggled, we fought to the last end, and we were rewarded with victory.”

He ascribed the European win to the appointment of Thomas Tuchel in January, who replaced the dismissed Frank Lampard after Chelsea finished fourth in the Premier League and lost the FA Cup final to Leicester.

He explained, “It was the entrance of a new coach, a change in tactics, and a lot of work.”
