Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has missed Germany’s latest training session with a back injury, according to Germany boss Hansi Flick.

The injury has raised doubts about his availability for Chelsea’s Premier League game against Brentford next Saturday.

Rudiger has started all seven of Chelsea’s Premier League matches so far this term, in which time the Blues have conceded just three goals – the joint-lowest in the league.

Rudiger missed Germany’s final training session today ahead of their World Cup qualifier against North Macedonia on Monday after complaining of back problems.

Flick said as per Bild: “Antonio Rudiger didn’t train as a precautionary measure, he received treatment and was doing well today.”
