Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has apologised to Benjamin Pavard after colliding with the France defender in a game between Germany and France on Friday night, which left slash marks on the Frenchman’s neck.

Pavard was left with red scratches from the studs of Rudiger’s boot, after the German accidentally stamped on him during a sliding challenge in the Nations League opener.

Pavard had to be taken off for treatment but was able to continue playing after some time.

Rudiger was quick to apologise after the game, claiming it wasn’t intentional.

He said on Twitter: “Sorry for Benjamin Pavard, it wasn’t intentional.

“I have apologised to him right after it happened and I also want to use this opportunity to wish him a speedy recovery.”
