8 Times Antonio Rudiger 'screwed-up' Other Footballers.(photos)

Chelsea's German stopper Antonio Rudiger has turned to be one of the best defenders in the current world currently. Football analyst say that Rudiger is among the best two English Premier League defenders alongside Liverpool's Virgil Van Dijik and former City's Diaz.

However, Rudiger's career was retrieved by Thomas Tuchel's arrival. Initially, Frank Lampard preferred using Azplicuetta, Silva and Christensen over Rudiger. The German's stopper playtime was headed the wrong way but Tuchel came to his rescue.

Unfortunately, Rudiger is a ' beast' sometimes. His anger is a bit toxic to fellow opponents. Antonio takes looks like a team soldier. He doesn't allow any other player with bad motives come close to Chelsea teammates leave alone laying a hand on them.

Not once, not twice but for many times we have seen Rudiger failing to control his guts and end up being in logger heads with opponents. Definitely he is a quarrelsome player.

The most memorable of his silly tackles came in the UEFA Euro 2020 competitions. Rudiger took a bite on Paul Pogba's shoulder as France played Germany. Most football fans ended up nicknaming him 'a man flesh eater'.

Just recently, in a dramatic match week 3 of the 2021/22 season between Chelsea and Liverpool, their was some disagreements between players of both teams as Liverpool were awarded a contradicting penalty and Reece James was sent off. Apparently, Rudiger maintained his intolerance motive as he physically got ready to fight Liverpool players.

Not even Suarez can be in a position to scare Rudiger. The fierce Luiz is well known for out of play tackles an rough plays as he once took a bite on Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic.

Below are some photos showing Rudiger screwing up his fellow footballers. Is there any player who can confortably handle Rudiger? I think no one, what do you think?
