Chelsea defender Rudiger slams 'nonsense' rumours he tried to get Lampard sacked

Antonio Rudiger Chelsea 2020-21

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has vehemently denied thathe had anything to do with Frank Lampard's sacking last week.

Rudiger has made just six Premier League appearances this season, with Lampard mostly consigning the Germany international to a role on the bench.

Some reports suggested that Rudiger caused a rift behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge, which led to his team-mate Tammy Abraham backing him last week.

"Hearing some mad stuff about @ToniRuediger on social media today. Completenonsense. Toni is a big bro to all of us," the forward tweeted.

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta also rubbished claims that he was involved in a bust-up with Rudiger, saying: "We didn’t have any issues and we don’t have. We always work together."

Rudiger has now denied any suggestions he asked the board to sack Lampard, saying he was thankful to receive more playing time under the former Blues midfielder in the games leading up to his dismissal.

“There have been so many nonsense rumours about me since last week. I’ve never talked with the board about the situation of the coach or on any other topics," Rudiger told The Athletic.

“Frank Lampard trusted in my abilities after Christmas in a very difficult situation and I was thankful for this. It was also the main reason why I told my representatives not to look for a possible winter move anymore.

"Unfortunately, it was not meant to be for our team to turn things around for the coach. We always wanted the best for the manager and for the club.”

Rudiger added that he believes Lampard will get another job in the near future, praising the job he did in 2019-20in his debut season in charge.

“He took over the manager position last season when things were very complicated for all of us. But we managed to qualify for the Champions League together with him," Rudiger said.
