Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger Had The Most Bizarre Reaction To Winning A Penalty

No footballer has ever enjoyed winning a penalty more than Antonio Rudiger did on Wednesday night.

Defending European champions Chelsea beat Malmo 4-0, with Andreas Christensen, Jorginho (2) and Kai Havertz on target at Stamford Bridge.

Jorginho's brace was unsurprisingly from the spot, with the Euro 2020 winner changing up his technique slightly but still putting both penalties away with ease.

The second spot-kick came about after Rudiger pressed high and won the ball back. Havertz played him in and as he got his shot away, the German centre-back was bundled over from behind.

But bizarrely, the cameras picked up Rudiger looking a tad psychotic when the referee pointed to the spot.

He got up off the turf with his tongue wagging and the visual of his face with the rain pouring down was both hilarious and frightening in equal measure.

Chelsea fans reacted to their No.2's antics in brilliant fashion:

Rudiger is certainly a unique personality and has become a huge hit with the Chelsea fans following his excellent run of form under Thomas Tuchel.

Despite this, the former Roma man has been heavily linked with a move from West London and is able to discuss a pre-contract with foreign clubs in January due to his deal expiring in the summer.

In September, Tuchel discussed Rudiger's situation and revealed he was hopeful of the player putting pen to paper.

"I hope that they find a solution but it's not only between coaches and players," Tuchel said, as per Eurosport.

"It's between the club and the player's agent. He plays excellent for a long time - very consistent at a very high level. I feel him very calm, very focused and it's obviously not a distraction for him.

"So give things time - sometimes it needs a bit longer, sometimes things get very fast. There's no news from my side.

"I think Toni feels very, very good at Chelsea. He feels respect from his team-mates, he feels the importance he has in the team. It's well deserved because he delivers."
