Kai Havertz Facts
- A child prodigy, Kai had joined local amateur soccer club Alemannia Mariadorf when he was just 4 years old. His grandfather, Richard, was the chairman of the club at that time. After nearly 6 years there, in 2009, he was signed up by a local club called Alemannia Aachen who were plying their trade in 2. Bundesliga, the 2nd-highest division league in professional soccer in Germany.
- A year later, aged just 11, he had joined the academy team of top-flight German club Bayer 04 Leverkusen. In 2016, having scored 18 goals for the club’s under-17 team, he was awarded the ‘Silver’ Under-17 ‘Fritz Walter Medal’, a set of annual awards presented by the German Football Association to youth soccer players. In 2018, he had been honored with the ‘Gold’ Under-19 ‘Fritz Walter Medal’.
- Later that year, he had been promoted to the senior team and had become Bayer 04 Leverkusen‘s youngest-ever (17 years and 126 days) debutant in the Bundesliga, the highest division league in professional soccer in Germany. This record was broken in 2020, by a margin of 111 days, by Florian Wirtz. A year later, Kai had become the club’s youngest-ever goalscorer in the Bundesliga.
- On February 17, 2017, his assist had helped record the 50,000th goal in the history of the Bundesliga.
- On April 13, 2019, he had scored a goal in his 100th appearance for Bayer, in a 1–0 league win over VfB Stuttgart. This had made him become the youngest player since VfB Stuttgart‘s Horst Köppel in 1967–68 to score 13 goals in a single league season.
- With Chelsea F.C., he had won the UEFA Champions League title in the 2020–21 season. He had scored the only goal in the final match of the tournament, against Manchester City F.C., helping his team win the tournament only for the 2nd time after their historic triumph in 2008. It was also his first-ever goal in the tournament.
