Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz recently sat down to talk with Marca about some of the biggest clubs in Europe. Havertz has been linked with Bayern Munich as well as other European super clubs like Liverpool and FC Barcelona. When asked what he thought about Atletico Madrid ahead of their Champions League clash, he said that,

They’re one of the best teams in the world, with lots of experience and they have a successful coach. 

Havertz also talked about Atletico Madrid’s defensive style of play saying,

I think Atletico are generally associated with a defensive style, solid at the back and dangerous counter attacks. With Joao Felix they’ve strengthened a bit on the ball. I admire El Cholo’s work and trophies. That’s why they’re a really big club.
