Marc Cucurella’s Resounding Declaration: Arteta’s Tactical Twist Unleashes Arsenal Star in Unexpected Role

Kai Havertz, an Arsenal summer signing, received a message from Chelsea star Marc Cucurella after the German international was assigned to a different role while on international duty. Havertz moved to the red side of London in June, spending £65 million to move from Stamford Bridge to the Emirates Stadium.

The 24-year-old has since struggled to justify the fee, giving Mikel Arteta’s men several performances that fall short of expectations. For the Gunners this season, he has mostly played as an attacking number eight, but on Saturday, he had a completely different role for Germany.

In a friendly match against Turkey, Havertz started at left-back for Julian Nagelsmann’s team. The game saw the adaptable Arsenal player score the first goal after just five minutes. Cucurella, a defender for the Blues who shared a dressing room with Havertz in west London the previous season, was obviously impressed by the former Bayer Leverkusen youth product’s performance.

Cucurella posted the following on his former teammate’s most recent Instagram: “LB (fire emoji).” Following the game, Havertz received a lot of praise from Die Mannschaft head coach Nagelsmann.
About his compatriot’s new role, the former Bayern manager said, “I don’t see this as a risk for him, but as a very, very big opportunity to play a key role at the Euros.” “Kai said he wanted to do it, wanted to try it — for a first time in an unfamiliar position, he did extremely well.”
