Joachim Low who is the coach of Germany national team has explained that Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger tried all his best to leave the Premier League giants this summer.

Antonio Rudiger has lost his place in the first team at Chelsea under Frank Lampard and was linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge to Spurs and AC Milan.

Last term, the German defender was an important member of the Blues' squad, but he has not played any game for Chelsea this season in the Premier League.

The arrival of Thiago Silva also at Stamford Bridge has also made first team action a difficult one for the 27-year-old star.

According to the report on Daily Mail, Low recounted Antonio Rudiger's frustration when it became clear he would not get a transfer away from Chelsea.

"I've been keeping an eye on things the last few days, what happened in the final hours of the transfer window, how many changes there were at the last minute.
"I think a lot of players will get game time this season – 11 players can't get you through a whole season.
"I was in constant contact with Toni Rudiger, he was keeping me in the loop. He had three or four options over the weekend but unfortunately, nothing materialized and he can try again in the winter.''

Chelsea are currently occupying seventh position on the Premier League standings with seven points after four games played.

Although the Blues have already signed Edouard Mendy from Rennes, but Sami Tlemcani is expected to start his career at Chelsea with the Under 18 team.

Poor performances from Kepa Arrizabalaga at Stamford Bridge made Chelsea chiefs to sign Mendy, and the Senegalese goalkeeper has been impressive since he joined the Blues.

His first Premier League game was a clean-sheet as Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace 4-0 at Stamford Bridge.
