Tuchel Backs Rudiger To Sign New Chelsea Deal

Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel is backing Anthony Rudiger to extend his contract at the club.

The Germany international has six months left on his contract and talks between him and Chelsea seems to have broken down.

Rudiger is free to sign a pre-contract with another club in January.

“Everyone wants him to stay and that’s pretty clear. But, as I said sometimes there is a delay in everything,” Tuchel said.

“He has been outstanding. I hope it stays like this and defensive performances. They deserve praise, for doing the invisible work.”

Rudiger was on target against Leicester City on Saturday as Chelsea ran out 3- 0 winners at the King Power Stadium.
