Tammy Abraham Reacts To Antonio Rudiger Rumours Following Frank Lampard's Sacking

Tammy Abraham has jumped to the defence of "big bro" Antonio Rudiger after he was accused of 'causing issues' that preceded Frank Lampard's sacking as Chelsea manager.

Damning reports emerged claiming that Rudiger went to the Chelsea board regarding Lampard and clashed with club captain Cesar Azpilicueta on more than one occasion.

Despite starting back-to-back Premier League games against Fulham and Leicester City, the German defender was reportedly unhappy with Lampard.

But Abraham has cleared the air by denying such claims with a post on social media.

"Hearing some mad stuff about @ToniRuediger on social media today," he tweeted.

"Compete nonsense. Toni is a big bro to all of us."

Blues legend Didier Drogba backed the Chelsea forward, telling him to stick together and get results.

On Twitter, he wrote: ""Well said Son, THIS IS THE WAYYY!!!

"Stick together, get results and the fans will forgive you everything. Critics hurts but when you are together it makes tou (sic) stronger and better."

Rudiger has played a bit part role for Chelsea this season with Lampard opting for summer signing Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma as his centre-back pairing.

But the 27-year-old will be given a clean slate following the managerial arrival of fellow countryman Thomas Tuchel who officially took over on Tuesday, taking training that evening ahead of playing Wolves tonight.

Chelsea are languishing in tenth-place with 29 points on the board, six points adrift of West Ham who currently occupy the last Champions League spot.

Will Tuchel turn things around at Stamford Bridge? Let us know what you think.
