Rudiger responds to ‘legend’ billing at Chelsea on the back of Champions League heroics

The Germany international defender helped the Blues to European glory last season, but does not consider himself to be a club icon

Antonio Rudiger has earned a “legend” billing from some at Chelsea, but the Germany international defender is not ready to drop himself into that category just yet.

Champions League-winning exploits last season have ensured that the Blues’ class of 2020-21 will forever enjoy a special place in Stamford Bridge folklore.

Rudiger played a key role in that European triumph, with one memorable challenge put in to deny Phil Foden during a 1-0 final win over Manchester City, but the 28-year-old centre-half is not convinced that he has done enough to enjoy icon status.
