WHAT THEY SAID: "We had a cook in London at the beginning, who came every day and cooked for us. And I have to say, I did not feel good at all. This had the complete opposite effect on me," he said. "He said to me, because I'm a total sugar freak. You probably noticed yesterday, I drink coke after the game and I need sweets and stuff, because that gives me strength and energy and he then said, stop completely, with it."

AND WHAT'S MORE: Havertz went on to reveal how a nutritionist subsequently recommended a completely different diet which has given him more energy.

"And then we got a nutritionist at Chelsea and he completely went the other policy and said Kai you need the Fanta, you need the coke, drink one a day," he added. "At half-time I get gummy bears, Skittles or something. And he has completely followed the other policy and then I said OK, I'll do it again and that moved the push in my body and I was full of energy again."
