KAI HAVERTZ was handed a bizarre new position for Germany in Saturday’s 3-2 friendly defeat against Turkey.
And Arsenal fans said “over to you Mikel Arteta” after he scored after just FOUR minutes.
Havertz, 24, completed a shock £65million move to the Emirates from rivals Chelsea over the summer.
The versatile forward scored just 19 league goals in three seasons at Stamford Bridge.
Yet Arteta still splashed out on Havertz after being convinced about his potential as a midfielder.
Things have not quite gone to plan though.
Havertz has just one goal and one assist in 19 outings this season.
Former Gunner Jermaine Pennant reckons his old side have made a huge mistake signing Havertz.
But the German could be set for a reprieve after getting a new role with his country.
National team boss Julian Nagelsmann left fans and pundits shocked when he announced that Havertz was lining up as a LEFT-BACK against Turkey.

The playmaker has never filled that role in his career before.
But Nagelsmann explained: “Kai won’t always be in this position. I have a great idea, he’s an exceptionally good footballer.
“This is a very good option. He won’t always play as a classic left-back.”
Indeed, the tactical switch paid dividends immediately when Havertz fired in Germany’s opener after just four minutes.
And Arsenal fans reckon Arteta could cook up a storm by deploying Havertz in a similar role for his club.
One said: “Over to you Arteta.”
Another declared: “Arteta about to unleash a madness after the international break.”
One noted: “What the heck is Arteta going to do with him now.”
Another added: “I just saw Havertz score. My god, it really just happened.”
Germany’s good fortunes didn’t last forever though.
Turkey pulled back an equaliser through Ferdi Kadioglu in the 38th minute.
And two minutes into added time, the visitors went ahead thanks to Kenan Yildiz.
But Germany came back fighting in the second and made it 2-2 in the 49th minute through Niclas Fullkrug.
Yet it was Turkey who eventually came up trumps, with Yusuf Sari’s 71st minute penalty proving to be decisive for a 3-2 victory.
