Thomas Tuchel has acknowledged that Chelsea will find it difficult to replace Rudiger after disclosing that the defender will leave this summer.
“Well, at the moment no; because of the sanctions, and even if hopefully the sanctions will be in the past, even then it will be incredibly difficult.
“Because Toni is what he is, a big personality, and a big leader
“He takes the fear away from other people, gives you confidence when he’s next to you and he played between 50, and 60 matches over 90 minutes on an incredible level of consistency.
“It will be challenging, but like always, no matter how much I love Toni and how big a role he played, there will be life, there will be Chelsea without Toni Rudiger, and we will need to find solutions.
“The situation is that Toni will leave the club this summer, he wants to leave the club. He told me this privately.
“Toni is a key figure and will stay that way until the end of the season, but it is disappointing of course and we will miss him a lot.
“I had a big connection with Toni from day one, and he deserves my full support because he delivered incredible performances until today, so reliable.
“So it was a give and take. And I know that he’s very aware of it, and I’m just happy to have had the chance to coach him and to have him on the team. Because he was nothing else but brilliant until today.
“And the club did as well. We had offers, we had big offers for him and the club tried everything for him.
“But for some weeks we cannot fight anymore, since we had the sanctions we cannot adjust, we cannot continue. So it is what it is.”
