 Rudiger reveals why he chose Chelsea above other Clubs

Antonio Rudiger sealed his move to Chelsea on a £34m move from Roma last week, becoming the English Champions first major signing of the summer.

The ex-Roma defender is looking forward to playing for a big club and he is hoping to learn from his new boss, Antonio Conte as a coach.

Rudiger pointed out the improvement in Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso as factors in his decision.

And the 23-year-old thinks his new club is on a different level to his old one.

Rudiger said: "Not to be disrespectful, but when you speak about Roma and Chelsea, Chelsea is a big club.

"Roma is a big club too, in Italy, but I think Chelsea is a different level.

"Of course, for me, the biggest reason was the coach, Antonio Conte.

He's a fantastic coach.

"He improved a lot of players, like last season Moses and Alonso.

"They had a great season and I that's why I said I want to be a part of that."

The defender helped his Germany to win the Confederation Cup in Russia after defeating Chile 1 nil in the final.
