Real Madrid, Rudiger: “We know what a final here means. Watch out for Fullkrug”

The defender was interviewed during the Madrid club’s Open Media Day ahead of the final against Borussia Dormund Antonio Rudiger he spoke about the Wembley match: “For me it’s very important to have good energy in the dressing room, playing for this club is a dream that has come true and that’s why I try to enjoy it every day and try to show the best version of myself. – continues the German centre-back – It will be a difficult match as it is a final, they will be very prepared and we must not underestimate them. We have to be in the best shape possible and be disciplined, because they are very dangerous on the counterattack if we want to score a goal more than them.”

Then there is room for the rivals in detail: “It’s always a pleasure to play against a team like Dortmund because I played there when I was little and I can’t wait for that day to come. I know Fullkurg well, a physically strong forward, but I will prepare as always to face him. – continues Rudiger – We have to be good and disciplined with the ball at our feet, then we have players like Vinicius, Rodrygo or Bellingham who can score at any moment”.

Then there is room for feelings in view of the final: “We have to enjoy this week with the final because it doesn’t happen many times that we experience it even if the club’s history says otherwise. The week before the final was always very special, even when I played it against Chelsea. Here, however, there is more pressure due to the club’s history, everyone here knows what it means to play a final with this shirt on”.
