Paul Merson: Blames Lampard for Rudiger leaving Chelsea on a free

Paul Merson: Blames Lampard for Rudiger leaving Chelsea on a free

Antonio Rudiger delivered his farewell speech to Chelsea and London after Chelsea lost to Liverpool in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

“There was a chance [of staying] but sanctions are not the problem,” Rudiger said.

“I don’t want to go too deep in things.

“At the end of the day it’s not only about one side, it’s both sides.

“Chelsea have been great to me, I have been great to Chelsea.

“As always, I am very, very thankful… me, my family. I became a man here. My kids were born here and everything. London and especially Chelsea will always be special to me.”

Paul Merson: Blames Lampard for Rudiger leaving Chelsea on a free

Paul Merson reacting to this, wrote in his column for Sky Sports strongly believes that there is only one person to blame for.

“Losing Rudiger to Real Madrid is going to break Chelsea’s heart, but his mind was made up 18 months ago with the way he was treated by Lampard,” stated Merson.

“He got completely binned out the team by Lampard and I think that left a lasting effect on Rudiger. That’s when he decided that he’s not signing a new contract.

“Years ago, if Real Madrid and Barcelona came calling then you went.

“I don’t see that anymore.

“Chelsea are as good as Real Madrid, you can see that in the Champions League quarter-final. The Blues had a bad 45 minutes but apart from that, they were a far superior team to Real Madrid.

“Now Chelsea are letting a £70-80 million defender go on a free transfer and they’re going to bring someone in for £70 million who will be nowhere as good as Rudiger.

“They’re going to have to strengthen in defence as Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are going to leave. I like Trevoh Chalobah but they play three at the back so they’ll need to bring in another defender.”
