Rudiger has a full support from the Chelsea’s coaching staff
The international Germany defender is approaching the final 12 months of his current deal with the Premier League heavyweights.
Antonio Rudiger has full support
Antonio Rudiger is delighted to hear that Thomas Tuchel would like to see him sign a new contract at Chelsea, with the German defender ready to speak on terms after this summer European Championship. The 28-year-old in command is approaching the final 12 months of his current deal, now spending four seasons at Stamford Bridge. Transfer speculation has surfaced at varying intervals, with Antonio Rudiger not always a guaranteed starter, but he has earned a favor with fellow countryman Thomas Tuchel and is now lining up for extended stays in west London.
Blues boss Thomas Tuchel on the half-center who helped his side achieve a Premier League top four finish and a place in the Champions League final said nothing is better than what Antonio is doing for a new contract. If Antonio wants to have a new contract, he has our full support to stay at the club. Rudiger performs with his performances and has been amazing from day one. Responding to these comments, Antonio said it was nice and he was happy too. According to Rudiger they always make decisions to some extent depending on the coaching staff, but in the long run they can never rely on them anyway and that after the European Championship they can talk.
There may be another exit ahead
Antonio has accepted 33 runs for Chelsea in all competitions this season, with 24 of them hitting Thomas, who replaced club legend Frank Lampard at the helm in January. Hopes there will be another road ahead, with the Blues gearing up for a European showdown with domestic rivals Man City on Saturday, a side they’ve already beaten in league and FA Cup action this timeframe. Antonio added in the pursuit of the continental crown that City will have the ball more often than they have and they know it.
