Antonio Rudiger rejects Chelsea “legend” title

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has rejected claims he is a club legend after helping the club to Champions League glory last season.

When asked if he can be called a ‘legend’ following the European triumph, he told The 5th Stand: “It was good, but ‘legend’, I wouldn’t say that.

“We did it as a team, as a group, and a “legend” is for other people to decide. But for me it is just that we won the Champions League together as a group and it was good.

“It was not only that challenge by me, it was Azpi’s challenge, it was also Reece’s challenge, Christensen’s challenge and Kai’s goal, Mason’s assist. It was a good team effort.”
