Kai Havertz finally scored his first goal for Arsenal in their 4-0 battering of AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League at the weekend and the fans just can’t stop singing about it! The Gunners gave their travelling fans something to party about with a dominant display at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday (September 30) and the game was full of loveable moments.
Arsenal raced into a 2-0 lead in the first half and basically put the game to bed even before the second half began. However, soon into the second half, the Gunners received their second penalty of the game after captain Martin Odegaard was tugged down inside the box.
At one point, it appeared that Gabriel Jesus would assume the penalty to get among the scorers himself. However, Odegaard had a chat with him before encouraging Havertz to take the penalty to finally break his goal duck with the club – having been unable to score in his first eight games across all competitions.
Havertz made no mistake in slotting the penalty into the back of the net, and thus started a roaring party at the Vitality Stadium. The Arsenal players, to their credit, were absolutely delighted for the German forward and mobbed him after the goal in a beautiful display of team bonding.
The fans got exactly what they needed to debut a brand new chant for Havertz after waiting for this moment for months. Soon after the goal, the travelling section started singing a chant in loud voices to elevate the party mood around the ground.
The Kai Havertz chant was almost non-stop sung by the fans until the end of the game and even afterwards, when Odegaard & co urged the supporters to show more appreciation for the summer signing. The irresistible, groovy chant goes something like this:
Tsamina mina, eh, eh,
Waka waka, eh, eh,
£60 million down the drain,
Kai Havertz scores again.
Of course, this chant is heavily inspired by the popular 2010 World Cup theme song ‘Waka Waka’ sung by Shakira. This is one of the most popular World Cup songs of all time and has over 15 million downloads worldwide, also making it one of the biggest hit singles of all time.
The Arsenal fans have clearly taken a big chunk of Shakira’s song and the chorus in particular, which goes something like
Tsamina mina, eh, eh
Waka waka, eh, eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa
The ‘£60 million down the drain’ bit is inspired by multiple English football fan chants – including the Anthony Martial one from Manchester United fans which features a ‘£50 million down the drain’ bit as well. With that being said, this isn’t exactly the first chant that Havertz has had in his career since moving to the Premier League either.
Chelsea fans, who used to love him at one point (especially when he scored the winner in the 2021 Champions League final against Man City), also had a catchy little chant for him. That one went something like
Oh Roman do you know what that’s worth,
Kai Havertz is the best on earth,
The silky German is just what we need,
He won Chelsea the Champions League
The Chelsea one was inspired by Belinda Carlisle’s ‘Heaven is a Place On Earth’ and was extremely popular among the Chelsea fans too.
But now that they’ve turned on him, the Arsenal fans have debuted a brand new one which will probably be sung by their fans every time Havertz scores a goal for them.
This irresistible little chant is spreading like wildfire among the fanbase, with some Arsenal fans even belting it out at a disco on their trip to Lens during their disappointing 2-1 loss in the Champions League.
The supporters are showing Havertz all the support that they possibly can to lift his confidence levels and ensure that he can start playing at his utmost potential and help the Gunners strongly compete for major titles moving forward.
