Chelsea defender Rudiger hails 'football expert' Tuchel: Look at Kepa!

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has hailed Thomas Tuchel as a 'football expert'.

Tuchel won his third trophy with Chelsea in just over a year in charge thanks to Saturday's Club World Cup final win over Palmeiras.

Speaking to German outlet Sport 1, Rudiger said: "He's an absolute football expert who knows exactly what he expects from us on the pitch, and I think you can tell by looking at us.

"With his style, he takes the whole team with him and doesn't forget anyone. You just have to look at the performance of our actual second goalkeeper, Kepa, in the semifinals, for example.

"Kepa has been written off by many but has done an outstanding job replacing Edou (Mendy) in recent weeks. Also because as a team we all believed in him, what a strong goalkeeper he still is."
