Rudiger will stay at Chelsea
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel says he has “trust” that the club and
Antonio Rudiger will agree a new contract for the defender.
Rudiger, 28, is out of contract at the end of the season and has been linked
with a number of European clubs.
He can now speak to other clubs as he is in the final six months of his deal.
“It’s in good hands because I trust the club 100% and have trust in my
player, so it’s a no problem situation for me,” said Tuchel.
“He’s a guy who needs to trust you, he needs to feel the connection,
he needs to feel the trust and he wants to feel it by minutes and actions.
Rudiger, who has 49 caps for Germany, has won the FA Cup twice,
the Europa League and Champions League since joining Chelsea in 2017.
