Speaking to chelseafc.com Rudiger said, “We knew from the start it would be a tough match and we wanted to give our all, but not everything went well, like it did against Atletico,’ said the defender. ‘We have to keep our heads held high, come back after international duty and start again.”
“Against Man City it’s not always easy, especially on the wings because they have quality players. We have a lot of quality as well but they had one shot which made the difference.”
“Of course everyone is very disappointed. We had a very good month until this game. It was tough but every game in this league is tough.”
Our next match after the international break, is away at Crystal Palace, who will be fighting for their first win of the season.
“First of all I hope everybody stays healthy, that’s the main thing, and then after we have to set our minds straight and go back on a winning run,’ he said.
“We have to win against Crystal Palace, it won’t be an easy match but that’s the only way you can get back on track.”
