Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger was in buoyant mood after scoring the opening goal for Chelsea in the 3-0 victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Blues fans were pleased with the result, but Rudiger had an extra incentive to be pleased with his goal.
Speaking after the win, Rudiger revealed that he told his son before the game that he’d score against the Foxes, which explains why he was extra pleased to have gotten a goal.
“I felt confident going into this game and I promised my son that I would score, definitely, and I did. It is good and I helped the team, it was a very good performance,” he said.
The German defender admitted that the team found the weakness in Leicester City’s defence and capitalised on it.
He added: “We analysed them and saw this is a weakness of them, and we capitalised of this. We worked on it and we scored, its good.”
