As a free agent after his contract at Stamford Bridge expired, the Germany international joined the Champions League champions in the summer.
The German star has spoken candidly about the contradictory feelings he experienced during the two teams’ Champions League quarterfinal matchup last year, saying he would not have left Chelsea for any other club but Real Madrid this summer.
Rudiger had initially wanted to extend his five-year contract in west London, but Chelsea was unable to do so due to the restrictions of the license they were required to operate under after the UK government decided to fine Roman Abramovich.
With Chelsea’s hamstring injury, Real saw an opening and was able to wrest the former Roma center-half away from the Premier League heavyweights.
Rudiger has only played in four games for his new team as a starter, but he admits that Ancelotti’s personal touch is unlike anything he has ever encountered.
Antonio Rudiger has referred to Carlo Ancelotti as “untouchable” and given the Real Madrid coach credit for facilitating a smooth transfer for him from Chelsea to Real Madrid.
He told the German publication Sport1 that he and his family had barely been in their new home for a few hours and were just picnicking when the doorbell unexpectedly rang.
Rudiger claimed that when he opened the door, Carlo Ancelotti was simply standing in my front. a stunning occasion. He dined with us, sat down at the table, and spent time getting to know my family.
Very common and down to earth. We discussed everything while he was there for two hours.
To be completely honest, I’ve never had anything like it and no coach has ever done that for me. Several months with him later
Ancelotti is untouchable when it comes to dealing with players, I’m afraid to say. Don Carlo, a legendary coach who had already won the Champions League when I was a child, must stop.
It’s wonderful to work with him every day at the world’s most prosperous club.
