Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has sent a huge message to goalkeeper and team-mate Kepa Arrizabalaga following their earlier bust-up during a training session.
The pair had to be separated by team-mates during their training session on Easter Sunday, although they seem to have settled their differences.
Ben Chilwell and Kurt Zouma jokingly demonstrated Antonio Rudiger training ground row with Kepa.
The center-back and the goalkeeper clashed shortly after Chelsea's 5-2 loss to West Brom which resulted in Thomas Tuchel sending home the German defender.
In his latest post on Social Media, Rudiger caption a picture of himself and the goalkeeper “Mi Hermano” - translated to ‘My Brother’.
Rudiger was in action for full 90 minutes as helping the Blues defeat Portuguese side Porto 2-0 in their Champions League quarter-final first leg.
Kepa was on the bench, as he has been for the majority of the season, with Edouard Mendy first choice goalkeeper.
Tuchel had said of the bust-up via Daily Star:
"It got heated up between Toni and Kepa. So we calmed the situation down immediately.
"The reaction was not OK. But how the guys handled the situation, especially Toni and Kepa, was amazing and showed how much respect they have for each other.”
Meanwhile, Italian giants Inter Milan will do everything to fend-off moves by Premier League club Chelsea to sign their in-form striker Romelu Lukaku this summer.
The 27-year-old has solely made the Italia Serie A his league - scoring with ease since he arrived from Manchester United in 2019.
Lukaku has registered 44 league goals in just 64 appearances for the Nerazzurri and has become an important member of Antonio Conte’s side.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero might be considering joining Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
The Argentine confirmed he will leave the Etihad Stadium when his contract expires at the end of this campaign. Barcelona, Paris Saint Germain, including Chelsea are already eyeing a move for the prolific goalscorer when he becomes a free agent.
This now leaves Aguero to just Spurs in England as he hopes to prove himself outside Eastlands just like he did at Man City.
He joined City in 2011 from Atletico Madrid and has made scored 257 goals and 73 assists in 385 matches for the Premier League table-toppers.
