As a Chelsea player these days, you know you always have a good chance of playing under a number of different coaching teams, with the nature of the beast and how the club is ran.

It is a cut-throat business, and if you are not doing said business on the pitch, then the manager is given the chop, this has become normal at Chelsea whether you agree with that or not.

Even Frank Lampard, a club legend, was not safe from how the club operates in January as he and his coaching staff were shown the exit doors at Stamford Bridge, and in came Thomas Tuchel and his coaching staff.

Antonio Rudiger benefited a lot from this, becoming rather out of favour under Lampard, but indispensable under Tuchel.

The German international has played under a lot of coaches at Chelsea now, and his latest words suggest this could play a part in his decision over whether he signs a new contract or not, with just one year remaining on his current deal.

Rudiger said:

“I’m happy. You always make your decisions to some extent dependent on the coaching staff, but in the long term you can never rely on them anyway. “After the European Championships, we can talk.”
