Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel provides an update on the injury of Antonio Rudiger
According to Football.London, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel stated at the post-match news conference that Antonio Rudiger’s fitness is not a major concern.
Antonio Rudiger was ruled out of Chelsea’s match against Arsenal. However, his colleagues, manager, and supporters must have missed him after witnessing Andreas Christensen and César Azpilicueta make costly errors.
The mistake by the Danish star allowed Eddie Nketiah to score, and César Azpilicueta’s foul on Bukayo Saka resulted in a penalty. The skipper losing his mind, if anything, summed up the night.
Rudiger has been a rock in Chelsea’s defence, missing only three Premier League games, including yesterday’s game. The German has demonstrated leadership by pushing the entire squad to do better.
Rudiger’s presence on the field would undoubtedly boost the confidence of his teammates in the backline.
When asked about the injury at the post-match news conference, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho explained the seriousness of the injury and claimed that he may heal in time for the West Ham encounter.
“It is groin pain and a little minor injury. It is a matter of days, I hope, and the doctors told me that today is unfortunately too soon, but he will be close for the West Ham game.”
