With Florian Wirtz, everything goes fast, always. Six months ago he still played for the 1. FC Köln in the German U-17 Bundesliga. On Saturday, the 17-Year-old made the offensive man of Bayer Leverkusen with his goal (2:4) against the world champion Goalie, Manuel Neuer and FC Bayern to become the youngest goalscorer in the Bundesliga.

experts predict him a great future. And his Coach Peter Bosz practiced according to Wirtz’ fourth League game of public criticism: “This Boy has received his best lesson, since he plays football. In the case of the first three, four ball contacts he has lost the Ball.” But Wirtz, so Bosz, was “a good and intelligent player. He accepts this and will learn from this, that in the Bundesliga a little time”.

But Bosz’ criticism of the concept: Are the big talents in top form, he brings them to the ground, they undergo a form of deep he highly praises you and talks to you greatly. The Dutchman succeeds in proving the development of Kai Havertz. Since the 56-year-old Bosz in December 2018, the Team of Bayer, has taken over, made the previously strong offensive players take the next step and became the absolute leader and the scorer. And with just 20 years. With his 28 Bundesliga goals and 9 assists in the last two seasons Havertz played out in the books of European Topclubs, a change in the summer for a three-digit million sum is almost speculated a daily basis. And this in times of Corona-crisis.

Wirtz even better than Havertz?

with this Havertz is now compared to the young Wirtz: “If he stays healthy, he’s a player of the category Havertz.” The words come from Jörg Jacob, former head of sports, young head and Wirtz’ explorers when 1.FC Köln. Compared to the “Kicker” is how he describes his pupil: “Florian can do anything, has enormous wit, strong technology, incredible game intelligence, is quick to dribble with the Ball, and everything with fire.”

Like the Cologne had their U-17 Captain to keep, but at the end of last year, waved to Bayer Leverkusen with a professional contract. Wirtz followed the call and moved to the end of January without noise over the Rhine. For the move to Leverkusen, he will have even canceled the big Bayern. First of all, the young national team player at Bayer should gain match practice in the U-19. Three wagers there, followed. Then, the Corona-Pause and Wirtz’ big Chance came.

Since the restart of the Bundesliga in mid-may, he was at every game of Bayer in the professional squad. His debut with the 4:1 win against Werder Bremen made him 17 years and 15 days the third-youngest player in Bundesliga history and his goal from the Saturday to the record man. Team-mate Havertz holds several League records: He inserts among others the youngest player with 50 and 100 Bundesliga. The development should go further so quickly, Wirtz replace his team-mate is also in these categories – and by coach Bosz is still a lot of criticism harvest.
