Thomas Tuchel has promised national player Antonio Rüdiger a contract extension at Chelsea. If Rüdiger wants to stay with the Blues, he has his “full support”, said Chelsea’s team manager on Monday.
The 28-year-old defender’s contract runs until 2022.
Rüdiger moved from AS Roma to Chelsea in 2017, and since Tuchel’s inauguration at the end of January he has been a top performer again.
“Antonio lets his performances speak for themselves and they were great. He sets a good example and has a positive aggressiveness in him. That’s what we like. If he can channel all of that into a top performance, we’re all great happy to have him, “said Tuchel.
