Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has admitted that his decision to stay at Chelsea was the best of his life following the club’s Champions League triumph.
“It will take a day or two before it sinks in,” Rudiger told Sport1 of Chelsea’s success. “It was the greatest day of my football career. No matter what happens in the years to come, I’ll never forget Porto.
“I’m happy that everything turned out like this at Chelsea. Looking back, it was my best possible decision. And now I’ll try to take my Chelsea form into Euro 2020.”
Rudiger also praised outgoing Germany national coach Joachim Low for having confidence in him even when he wasn’t playing much under Frank Lampard.
“I was in the starting XI for the national team, even when things weren’t going well for me at Chelsea,” he said. “It was an enormous vote of confidence from the national coach, for which I am extremely grateful.
“The national team was one of the main reasons I was looking around for alternative clubs so as not to endanger my place at Euro 2020.”
