Chelsea gaffer Thomas Tuchel is confident about agreeing renewed terms with center-half Antonio Rudiger. He is hoping that the club can “find a solution“.

Thomas Tuchel has engineered a dramatic improvement in Chelsea’s defending since his arrival. However, a coach can only do so much with drills and instructions. The execution is entirely dependent on the players on-field.

One such who has followed Tuchel to the T is Antonio Rüdiger. The German has played the most minutes in the backline, including every minute so far this season. He has claimed the left-center position as his own, contributing immensely on and off the ball.

Tuchel full of admiration for Rudiger

Rudiger’s energy and attitude are infectious. He forms a key part of the team’s chemistry. All these factors are making Tuchel want Rudiger to stay at the club and be part of their improved defensive set-up.

Tuchel heaped praise on Rudiger and remains hopeful that the concerned parties reach an agreement in the coming weeks.

I hope they find a solution but it is not only between coaches and players and what we wish for. It is between the club, the player and the agent,” Tuchel quoted in a press conference.

He has been excellent, a very consistent player on a high level, calm and focused. Everything is in place but sometimes players need a bit longer. It is nothing new from our side“.

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are both said to be keeping a close eye on developments.

The center-back’s deal is set to expire at the end of the season.
