Thomas Tuchel hope the club and Rudiger can come to terms as his contract at the club will expire at the end of the season.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has his say on the contract on central defender Toni Rudiger as the German’s contract will expire by the end of the season.
Rudiger has been in a fine form since the arrival of the new manager and Tuchel wants the club and player to find solution to that.
Speaking at the press conference ahead of the game against Tottenham in the Premier League Tuchel said for now he has no news on the contract for now.
“In the moment it is between the club, the player and the agent. We hope we can find a solution, because he is playing some excellent football for us.
“He’s very calm, very focused and none of this is a distraction for him. Sometimes these things need a little bit of time but there is no news on this from my side. I think Toni feels very good at Chelsea.”
“It’s well deserved [the credit he is getting] because he always delivers when he plays. He feels the love from the supporters and he’s at a big club in Europe, playing in one of the best leagues and whatever happens will happen.
“I am relaxed about it and as I said earlier, it is between the club and the player’s representatives to find the solutions.”
