Rudiger is a goal of Real Madrid for the next season. The 28-year-old center-back ends his contract in 2022, he has not yet renewed with him Chelsea and it is a great market opportunity for the Whites, who want to strengthen the center of defense. However, in his latest statements the German international has assured that he will speak with the English club, where he has stated that he is “happy”.
«I am happy here, people can see that I am happy. I will talk to the club about my contractual situationI already said that after the Euro Cup there would be talks and there have been between Marina Granovskaia and my agent. Speculations are not my friends, I focus on what I am doing, “said the defender in an interview in The Guardian.
He also praised Tuchel, which has recovered its best version: «It has given me a new life. He did not tell me to be the singing voice of the locker room because I am not like that, I like to show everything on the field. He told me what he expected of me, my natural qualities: to be aggressive and to be a leader».
Finally, he spoke of the system where he is best. «I played with a defense of three with Antonio Conte and I played with a defense of four with Maurizio Sarri. If there is a clear plan on what to do, it does not matter if it is three or four, the structure matters more. That’s why you have to give a lot of credit to the coach. Sometimes it is a defense of three, but I end up pressing very high… so suddenly it is a defense of four. When you push up everyone has to watch out. They are automatisms. Any little detail that doesn’t go well can cost you dearly. If you press high there are always spaces in the field, if you fall asleep it is chaos. Since Klopp arrived, Liverpool press, press and press. Manchester City also do very well, “he explained.
