Real Madrid defender, Anthony Rudiger has revealed a shocking fact about some errors he made at Stamford Bridge, Newspremises reports.
Rudiger played a pivot role in Chelsea’s 2021 Champions League success under former manager, Thomas Tuchel.
The Germany international admits he deliberately made mistakes to stir the fans up and increase the volume inside Stamford Bridge.
The 29-year-old left Chelsea for Real Madrid this summer as a free agent.
It brought an end to five seasons at Stamford Bridge where he won the Champions League, FA Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, Europa League and the UEFA Super Cup.
And now the 29-year-old has revealed he deliberately caused chaos by producing errors on the pitch to stir Chelsea fans when he felt they were too quiet during matches.
“I’ll be honest: I deliberately made a few mistakes because it was just too quiet in the stadium for me during this game,” Rudiger told German outlet Sport1.
“I wanted to wake people up with it.”
