Antonio Rudiger has revealed he wants to be called ‘Rudi’ after joining the European Champions, Real Madrid.
TheNewsGuru reports that the former Chelsea defender said he is focused to work and can be very funny off the pitch.
“I’m a player with a strong character, but I think it’ s best to leave the rest to others and not to talk too much about yourself. I think it’s hard to improve your speed, but I’m lucky because it’s something I have thanks to my genetics and I’m really pleased about that, he said.
“On the pitch, I’m focused exclusively on work, but off the pitch I’m funny and I like to laugh and make people have a good time. But most of all I can laugh at myself. Since Toni Kroos is already in the team, and I don’t like to be called Antonio, I’d like people to call me Rudi”.
