Tuchel is trying to convince Rudiger to stay
Antonio Rudiger’s contract with Chelsea expires in the summer. And it seems he is in no hurry to sign a new deal. With interest from Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
However, Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel is doing his best to persuade Rudiger to stay at Stamford Bridge.
After the win over Leicester on Saturday, Tuchel praised him. And insisted that he and the club are trying to ensure he stays with the Blues beyond next summer.
“He has been extraordinary from day one until now. I hope it stays that way.” he said.
“In defense we are strong as usual and they deserve praise for that. Everyone wants him to stay. it’s clear and he knows. But sometimes there is a delay in these things and obviously there is a delay. It can happen these days. However, it does not affect his mentality, it does not affect his quality, it does not affect his behavior. He is fully committed to Chelsea now and I am absolutely sure he feels the trust, respect and love from the club and the spectators. He knows he has a fantastic club here, he e is a competitor.We will have a little patience and hope for a happy ending.”
