I do not know, but they directly quoted him, and they cannot just make up a direct quote. The writer would get sacked and the paper sued if they just made it up out of thin air.

But there's usually a mention of where the person said it. Nothing on this one.

Considering the reputation of those 2 papers who used that quote, I'm not surprised if they just picked it without checking the validity of it.

Man City star brands Chelsea icon a "bastard" during Kai Havertz transfer talk

Michael Ballack: Farewell to a Chelsea Legend - Football Analysis

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has branded his fellow countryman Michael Ballack a "bastard" while explaining why Chelsea transfer target Kai Havertz is not like the former Blues midfielder.

Gundogan may have to come up against his Germany international team-mate Havertz in the Premier League next season.

The 21-year-old has told his current club Bayer Leverkusen of his desire to leave and join Chelsea.

The west Londoners have apparently agreed personal terms with the versatile midfielder and are negotiating the fee.

If Havertz completes a move to Chelsea he is expected to help them become serious challengers to Liverpool and City.

The Leverkusen star has been compared to Blues icon Michael Ballack but Gundogan thinks Havertz is a class above.

"In my opinion, Havertz is even better than Ballack in terms of his playing ability," he told Sport Bild.

"Ballack had a certain level of aggression in his game, and a strong mentality.

"He was a top player of the previous generation - a bastard on the pitch, in a positive sense. Kai isn’t like that."

Havertz will become Chelsea's third signing of the summer and second from the Bundesliga.

Frank Lampard's side moved early in the window to capture RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner - who Gundogan also knows from his time with the national team.

"Believe me: Everyone at City knows about Timo Werner," Gundogan said.

"Many of my team-mates asked what kind of guy he is. He deserves respect."

City will be weakened next year after selling winger Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich.
