Rudiger adamant Chelsea squad can develop into title winners

Chelsea defender Toni Rudiger is adamant their squad can develop into title winners.

Rudiger has spoken of the competition for places at Chelsea and feels it can only benefit our exciting squad, a squad he has tipped for a bright future under our all-time leading scorer.

"We have a good mix at the club and it's not always easy to find that," said Rudiger to chelseafc.com. "We have some experienced guys and of course a lot of young players, who in my opinion have done really well this season.

"Obviously we cannot predict the future, but with this mix of good, talented young guys and some more experienced players then I don't see why we can't challenge for trophies. In the future, we have a chance. With every year they take a step closer and as the coach has said before, when you are at Chelsea then these are the levels you want to get to and we should be reaching.

"Having competition is a good problem to have," added the defender. "It makes you train better and it makes you play better, because you know there are other people waiting to take your place. You have to be on the top of your game always. As a coach, it's obviously difficult to keep everyone happy and of course we have so many options, so you have to give your all every day."
