Kai Havertz, the German football star, has revealed that his form has been transformed by eating sugary treats during half-time. The Chelsea attacker, who describes himself as a “sugar freak”, claims that his club’s dietary specialist advisor reversed a sugar ban imposed by his own personal nutritionist. Havertz had initially tried to become “more professional” by following the instructions of his personal nutritionist and changing his diet completely. However, he claims that he felt worse after doing so.
Havertz said that he drank coke after games and needed sweets and other sugary treats because they gave him strength and energy. His personal nutritionist advised him to stop completely with these treats, but Havertz claims that this had the opposite effect on him. He then got a nutritionist at Chelsea who advised him to drink Fanta or coke once a day and eat gummy bears or Skittles during half-time. Havertz claims that this advice has helped him regain his energy and form.
In addition to this, Havertz also credits his girlfriend, Sophia Weber, for his improved form. Weber is now the cook and prepares home-cooked meals for Havertz almost every day. Havertz believes that this has also contributed to his rediscovery of his old form.
Havertz’s revelation about his diet and form comes ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Liverpool on Tuesday. The 23-year-old has been in good form recently, scoring two goals in Chelsea’s 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace last weekend.
Havertz joined Chelsea from Bayer Leverkusen last summer for a fee of £71m. He has struggled to adapt to the Premier League at times, but has shown glimpses of his potential in recent weeks. Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has praised Havertz’s recent performances and believes that he has the potential to become one of the best players in the world.
Havertz will be hoping to continue his good form against Liverpool on Tuesday. Chelsea are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table, one point behind third-placed Leicester City and two points ahead of fifth-placed West Ham United. Liverpool, meanwhile, are in sixth place, four points behind Chelsea and with a game in hand.
The match between Chelsea and Liverpool promises to be a thrilling encounter, with both teams fighting for a place in the top four and a spot in next season’s Champions League. Havertz will be hoping to play a key role in helping Chelsea secure a crucial victory.
