Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has admitted he’s grateful to Tottenham Hotspur captain Harry Kane for his gesture after he was racially abused during the 2-0 win at Tottenham in December.
According to Rudiger, Kane apologised after he complained he was racially abused by Tottenham fans.
Rudiger told Der Spiegel: “I was grateful for the gesture from the England captain.
“I said, ‘it’s absolutely not your fault, you don’t have to apologise’.
“But he wanted to do it as a sign that his club doesn’t think like that.”
Despite Rudiger’s complaints of being racially abused by Tottenham fans, Spurs claimed they found no evidence.
Tottenham said: “The club and the Metropolitan Police have now exhausted all avenues of investigation.
“There is no evidence to corroborate or contradict the allegation and as such neither ourselves nor the police are in a position to take any further action.
“We are fiercely proud of our anti-racism work and our zero tolerance of any form of discrimination.
“This is one reason why we have attributed so much time and resource to investigating this matter.”
