Rudiger’s season at Chelsea
Rudiger has been on Chelsea’s books since July 2017. In total, Rudiger has participated 149 times in all competitions for Chelsea, scoring seven goals and providing three assists.
But Rudiger’s position at Chelsea has varied quite a bit, especially over the course of the 2020/21 campaign.
For much of Frank Lampard’s time at the club, Rudiger proved to be a marginal player.
During the first half of the last campaign, for example, the stopper was only granted two appearances in the Premier League.
Such lack of minutes even led to speculation that Rudiger was ready to move to PSG during the winter transfer window.
Rudiger, in the end, stayed put, but initially continued to fight for regular Premier League action. However, Frank Lampard was fired, before Thomas Tuchel took the reins at the end of January.
And since the latter’s appointment as Chelsea manager, Rudiger has seen his playing time dramatically increased, becoming a key cog in the team that won the Champions League in May.
Rudiger confirms contract negotiations
Yet despite his return to favor, Rudiger’s long-term future at Chelsea has been up in the air for some time now.
This comes with the German who now has less than a year on his current contract at the Bridge.
However, on Tuesday, Rudiger provided an update on his contract status, and it is good news for fans of the German.
Chelsea will face Villareal in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday night.
Before the tie, Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Rudiger would speak to the media.
When Rudiger was doing it, he was inevitably drawn to his contract situation. This led Cap to explain that he wanted to focus on Euro 2020, but now that he’s back, talks on a deal have started:
“Like I said before, I wanted to focus on the euros and then when I get back the talks can start. That is what has happened for now. The talks have started and we will see what the time brings us ”.
