Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger spoke out following his move to Stamford Bridge from AS Roma last week.
“We speak about Rome and Chelsea and Chelsea’s a big club, – Rudiger told the club’s official website – Roma’s a big club too in Italy but it’s a different level.
“For me the most [important] reason was the coach, Antonio Conte. He’s a fantastic coach because he improved a lot of players. Last season [Marcos] Alonso and [Victor] Moses played great.”
