William Gallas is not very optimistic about Kai Havertz's future. The fact that Havertz played at left back in the match against Turkey is a cause for concern. Julian Nagelsmann made an interesting decision, and Gallas believes that he embarassed Havertz with such a decision.

Gallas emphasized that this young German played as an attacking midfielder for years. ‘At twenty-four, Kai Havertz is playing as a left back four his country? Seriously? Something is very wrong. I don’t know what to say about this.

For me, to make this decision, it seems like Nagelsmann doesn’t respect Havertz as a player. Havertz has spent his entire career playing as an attacking player and then you put him in at left back? I really don’t know what to say about this decision….

I’m completely confused. I’m trying to think about it from the player’s point-of-view…this doesn’t look good. I don’t like this decision from the manager. This is a complete lack of respect from the manager.

’- Gallas said, as quoted by METRO!

Gallas also commented on the fact that Havertz is not in the form he used to be. In addition, the former Arsenal defender believes that Mikel Arteta did not need a player like Havertz.

‘I said at the beginning of the season that Kai Havertz would struggle for Arsenal. I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but he is still struggling. I think it was always going to be difficult for Havertz to adapt to the way that Arsenal play and the way that Mikel Arteta wants to use him.

I don’t think he was the type of player that Arsenal needed to sign in the summer. When you look at the squad, in my opinion, there were different types of players that they should have prioritised. It looks like it was a mistake to sign him.’
