Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce we have today completed the signing of Antonio Rudiger from Roma.

The 24-year-old has signed a five-year contract and will wear the No.2 shirt.

The defender said: ‘It’s a great feeling because not every player has the opportunity to join a huge club like this.

'I am looking forward to meeting up with my new team-mates and I’m very proud to officially become a Chelsea player.’

Technical Director Michael Emenalo added: ‘We are pleased to be able to bring in a player of proven quality who adds to our defensive options.

'Antonio is still young but is experienced at club and international level and possesses all the requisite attributes to thrive in the Premier League. We have been aware of him for some time and we are confident he will fit in well with the squad.’

 @Rekin - 'They had the second best defense in Serie A last season. Unless you are saying that Serie A's offensive players are garbage?'

We've had 'the best defence in the league' a few times these past few years, and it included Gary Cahill each time. 

 

And Roma fans would be over the moon if they had Cahill going there, to put into perspective how they rate their players they consider so-called 'great'.

Rudiger was carried by Fazio & Manolas last season no different from how Terry, Luiz & Azpi have done their best in carrying Cahill.

In order, Roma's 'best' defenders were:
Fazio
Emerson
Florenzi 
Manolas
Rudiger/Juan Jesus

To consider players great, just because they played their part, is lunacy. By that logic, Kalou was elite, since he played in the Champions League Final & contributed in games beforehand.

What exactly is your point?
We know for a fact that Roma fans rated Rudiger, we can only speculate whether they would be over the moon to have Cahill. 
Furthermore, there is 8 years between them. If they are at a similar level now, would that not be great news for us? Plenty of time for Rudiger to develop and become a better player.

Lay of the drugs the only good defenders for Roma were Rudiger and Manolas.

Not convicted by this guy, I too think Manolas is better, but still hoping he can pull "an Alonso". Welcome!
