Chelsea FC defender Antonio Rudgër has revealed the he was frequently talking to Timo Werner during COVID-19 lockdown in order to convince the striker, who he matches with Leicester’s Jamie Vardy, to move to Stamford Bridge.
“I did speak to him before because we have known each other for a long time,’ Rudiger told Chelsea TV. “We spoke a lot during the lockdown and he told me he was interested in coming to England. Of course then I did my bit, what I had to do.
“He’s a really big threat to defenders. RB Leipzig is a more counter-attacking team but in terms of attacking the defensive line, he’s similar to Vardy. He has a lot of pace and if the defender makes a mistake and loses the ball, then he goes!
“I would say he’s a quiet, humble guy, always ready to do better. I hope he adapts very quickly when he comes because as we all know this competition is different than others”
