Bernd Leno reveals one player Arsenal squad finds ‘difficult to play against’

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno maintains that the Gunners squad are in agreement that it is ‘difficult to play against’ Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger.

Rudiger looked set to leave Stamford Bridge last summer after being forced down the pecking order of center-backs under fired manager Frank Lampard. However, the German has established himself as a key ingredient of the Blues team since Thomas Tuchel took over at the end of January.

Rudigar has formed part of a compact Chelsea defense which has succeeded in keeping 18 clean sheets in 27 games under the new manager.

Gunners stopper Leno – Rudiger’s fellow Germany international – recently revealed he wants his Arsenal teammates to find their ‘nasty’ streak. And when asked which of his Germany associates have that quality within them, Leno namechecked Chelsea duo Timo Werner and Rudiger, along with Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich and Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.


“I immediately think of Joshua Kimmich because he’s a calf bite,’ the goalkeeper told Sport1.

“Ilkay Gündogan is also a brutal player. He may not interfere, but he plays very intelligently.

“Timo Werner is also a disgusting player because he always goes behind the chain and looks for the rooms there.”

When it came to Rudiger, Leno admitted that Arsenal players have all agreed that the center-back is a thorny opponent.

“Antonio Rudiger is also a good example: Everyone at Arsenal has said that it is extremely bitter and difficult to play against him,” he added.

“Such players are good for a team and hurt the opponent.”
