According to Andy Townsend, you can’t imagine a successful Chelsea team without Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger.
“You can’t imagine a successful Chelsea team without him,” he said during commentary for talkSPORT.
“He’s got those inspirational qualities, he gets people off their seats as a centre-half! There aren’t too many that do that.
“Every now and again he goes crazy and tries to hit one, blazing it out onto the King’s Road.
“But he’s just got that about him. He wants it. He wants to make something happen for the team when it’s all gone a bit quiet.
“And defensively, very few players get the better of him.”
