‘Get it done and dusted. He’s irreplaceable’ — Joe Cole tells Chelsea board

Joe Cole was in the BT Sport studio with Rio Ferdinand as they analysed Chelsea’s performance in the 3-0 victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

It was a top class performance from the team, and one of the players on fire was Antonio Rudiger who headed in Chelsea’s opening goal that set the pace for an easy Blues victory.

Speaking after the game, Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand urged Chelsea to do everything possible to keep Rudiger, stating that he’s currently one of the best defenders in the world.

Fellow pundit Joe Cole agreed, as he also urged Chelsea to do everything possible to keep Rudiger, saying that the German international is irreplaceable.

Joe Cole said: “He’s in a fantastic position, similar to what Callum [Hudson-Odoi] was in a few years ago where your contract is running down but you’re an important member of the squad.

“He’s a fantastic player and Thomas Tuchel will just be wanting to get it done and dusted and signed because he’s so important.

“He’s almost irreplaceable in the sense that, while there’s other great centre-backs at the club, I don’t think there’s any with his aggression and that influence he seems to have over the team. So he’s in great position.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
