Rudi­ger showing prom­ise?

Irish Examiner - Sport - - SOCCER -

A big week for Chelsea be­gins with a trip to Rome, where An­to­nio Rudi­ger will come up against a few fa­mil­iar faces. The 24-yearold ar­rived at Stam­ford Bridge from Roma for £34m over the sum­mer and is look­ing for­ward to an early re­union in Italy.

“It al­ways hap­pens like this,” he said. Rudi­ger said he had “two won­der­ful years” with the club in Serie A and the early signs are pos­i­tive at Chelsea too, with the Ger­man solid and stub­born in the three-man de­fence at Bournemouth on Satur­day. “At the mo­ment, I am in good shape and this is where I want to stay and get bet­ter.”
