Rudiger is the new man but does not respect his seniors: another reckless tackle on Luka Modric.
Antonio Rudiger is renowned for being a tenacious center defender who serves as the captain of his teams’ defense. The German attained his highest level when playing for Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel’s leadership.
Real Madrid pounced on the player this summer, taking advantage of the fact that he was out of contract with the London club. In practice, the defender demonstrated his hardness around Modric and Hazard.
Ruidger made waves as well after getting involved following a powerful tackle on Vinicius by Gavi during the “clásico.” The physical prodigy of Barcelona, Ronald Araujo, was immediately confronted by the German. He speaks up with seeming confidence.
The German has arrived with the message that he is here to compete for a starting spot in Madrid, not to play friendlies or make new friends. He has demonstrated his character and his capacity to serve as the team’s leader.
When he first joined the “Blues” in 2017, the player excelled as a left-sided center-back in Thomas Tuchel’s renowned back three, earning him the moniker “Don Antonio” from the supporters.
