Rudiger rarely featured for Chelsea this season during Frank Lampard’s time in charge, but he’s been given a new lease of life under Thomas Tuchel.
He has started every game under the German head coach with Chelsea winning four consecutive Premier League matches.
Part of their immediate success under Tuchel has been down to their impressive defensive displays and Rudiger has opened up on what it’s like working under the former Paris Saint-Germain boss.
“Anyone who knows Tuchel, knows: He is a man who leaves nothing to a coincidence,” he added.
“He works in great detail, Tuchel is a tactical fox.”
