Former Chelsea defender William Gallas has heaped praise on Antonio Rudiger describing him as a warrior in the Blues backline. Gallas believes the Germany international is ready to challenge Virgil van Dijk for the tag of the best defender in the premier league.
Rudiger's career at Stamford Bridge has been full of ups and downs. But he has taken his game to a new level since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel. The former AS Roma star has been the club's best defender over the past few months and has been rewarded with a new contract offer.
Gallas lauded Rudiger for developing his game under Tuchel and cementing his spot in the side. Chelsea are looking to tie down Antonio Rudiger to a new contract, but the defender has not yet put pen to paper. The German did, however, confirm that he has not spoken to other clubs despite rumors of interest from Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.
