Belgium manager furious at Rudiger for 'reckless' De Bruyne challenge

Antonio Rudiger slammed for a foul on De Bruyne in the Champions League final.

The Belgian midfielder’s season has was disrupted by injury in the Champions League final against Manchester City.

He made a serious number of games this season due to hamstring and injury issues.

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez believes Rudiger should have been sent off for the reckless challenge on De Bruyne.

Roberto Martinez is now sweating over the recovery of his star midfielder ahead of Euros.

The Belgian manager said: “For me, Rudiger is very, very fortunate. When you look at the replay, there’s no clash of heads.

“He’s properly leaving the shoulder against Kevin. He seems concussed and we will see the state of that.

“But that leaves a sour taste, because Rudiger’s holding his head, it’s almost that he wants to show that he’s hiding something.

“For me, it was excessive force and it was reckless. And it should have been a red card.

“Kevin is not a player that goes down for no reason. You can see the pain and it’s a swollen eye.”
