Antonio Rudiger is a name that most Tottenham fans will know. The controversy over his allegations of racist chants from our home supporters (remember when they were a thing?) caused ructions galore and ultimately achieved little good. We all know that racism is insufferable and has to be outed without delay, however, a huge and forensic effort from THFC and the police, using lip reading experts scrolling through CCTV footage revealed nothing. It then emerged that Rudiger had made a similar claim before, that time in a Champions League game, and that also ended inconclusively.
Fast forward to the here and now, The Athletic believes that Mourinho wants Rudiger to join Spurs on loan.
From a footballing perspective, the 27-year-old fits José anti-nice boys template perfectly. Irrespective of whatever has happened between the player and Spurs in the past, and whatever has happened between the player and Frank Lampard in the present, Rudiger is a phenomenal talent and would comfortably walk into most Premier League starting XIs.
