Bayer Leverkusen starlet ruled out for school exam

Kai Havertz won't be making his 21st appearance of the season for Leverkusen against Atletico Madrid...instead he will taking an exam.

With a crucial Champions League second leg against Atletico Madrid on the cards, Bayer Leverkusen took the time to inform their fans which players would be unavailable for selection.

Along with several injuries and a suspension to contend with, Leverkusen also revealed they'd be forced to manage without the services of midfieldr Kai Havertz at the Estadio Vicente Calderon.

However, it emerged that the teenager has a very good excuse for staying behind.

Aw, bless his little cotton socks. While his teammates are toiling against Atleti, Havertz will be hitting the revision books at home!

At just 17 years of age, Havertz has already racked up 20 appearances for Leverkusen in his debut season.

Sadly, it would appear that his participation may be somewhat limited during the coming weeks.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
