Thomas Tuchel has confirmed Antonio Rudiger is set to leave Chelsea in the summer transfer window
Based on transfer windows in the summer Antonio Rudiger has decided to leave Chelsea and also Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Antonio Rudiger has decided to leave Chelsea. The Blue coach said that Rudiger, who was out injured against West Ham, informed the German coach in a private talk.
the Blue boss also noted that the club’s sanctions prevented them from being able to compete for the defender’s signature any longer. The summer will bring to an end Rudiger’s Chelsea tenure that started in 2017 when he signed from Roma.
The blue boss told Sky Sports: “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.”
