Kai Havertz dropped two f-bombs during his post-match interview after Chelsea’s Champions League final win, swatting aside a question about his price tag.
The German star has endured a difficult campaign at Stamford Bridge since his club-record £89m move and, before Sunday’s final against Manchester City in Porto, had failed to net in the Champions League.
But he picked the perfect time to break his duck, rounding Ederson and rolling the ball into an empty net to seal a 1-0 win for the west blues.
Havertz has received huge criticism this season for not living up to his price tag, and when it was brought up yet again after the match he shut down the reporter’s question.
Asked during his interview with BT Sport if he had finally repaid his transfer fee, Havertz said: ‘To be honest, right now, I don’t give a f*** on that!
‘We won the f***ing Champions League! I mean, we just celebrate now.’

The reporter Des Kelly then turned to the camera and apologised to the viewers, saying: ‘I apologise for that fruity language but you understand why, the emotions are flying high.’
Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta had interrupted the interview to celebrate with Havertz, praising him not only for his goal but his work rate in the game too.
‘He was so calm,’ said the Spaniard. ‘Not only that, he runs like crazy! That’s why he deserves this.’
Asked how it feels to score the winning goal in a UEFA Champions League final, Havertz said: ‘I don’t know what to say. I really don’t know what to say. I waited a long time.
‘Now I want to thank my family, my parents, my grandmother and my girlfriend. I don’t know what to say. ‘I’ve waited 15 years for this moment and now it’s here.’
