“I have to be honest, I was [nervous]. It’s a big penalty, a big role. Just crazy. It was good I kept the nerves. I’m very happy,” Kai Havertz told the press after the Palmeiras game.
“I think I’m the third penalty taker. Jorgi and Rom were both out. I was the only one on the pitch. The other players gave me trust. Hakim, everybody said ‘you do it, you do it’.
“I don’t know what to say [about winning the Club World Cup]. I dreamed of this as a kid, an amazing feeling for me.”
“I’m thankful for everyone that brought me here, my family, my girlfriend. The Champions League final, now this – all for them.”
Chelsea have claimed the Club World Cup award, their first in history, as Kai Havertz scored a late-game penalty to beat Palmeiras 2-1.
