Antonio Rudiger has been Chelsea’s best player this season. He has managed to be a brick wall for Chelsea ever since Tuchel took over. Rudiger was never the first choice for Frank Lampard however Tuchel picked him to defend his side of the goal. The confidence of Tuchel in Rudiger helped him reinvent himself and has managed to be Chelsea’s best player for the last couple of seasons.

Thomas Tuchel on Rudiger leaving

Thomas Tuchel had announced Rudiger’s departure in an interview. He revealed that Rudiger wants to leave in the Summer.

“Toni, the media is on it, The situation is that he wants to leave the club. He informed me of this is in a private talk. We gave everything – me and the club – but we could not fight anymore because of the actions. Without the sanctions, we would at least be able to carry on fighting, but our hands are tied. We don’t take it personally. It is his decision.

He is a key figure and will stay that way until the end of the season. But it is disappointing. We will miss him a lot. He gives courage in the dressing room. The kind everyone is afraid of, but the kind to play 50-55 games at an outstanding level. He is a top defender in the last one and a half years for me. We then need to find another solution.

Tuchel is desperate to find a replacement for Rudiger. Chelsea have shown interests in Sevilla defender Jules Kounde. Kounde could be a great replacement for Rudiger as Chelsea had almost signed the defender last season. However, they will be going all out to secure his services in the Summer.
