Two men arrested after Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger is pelted by objects

Published on: 24 January 2022

TWO men have been arrested after objects were thrown at Antonio Rudiger in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Tottenham.

The FA launched an urgent investigation after the items - one of which appeared to be a lighter and another a bottle opener - reportedly hit the centre-back.

Attempts to identify the culprits have been made by The Metropolitan Police, who confirmed two men were taken into custody.

The incident occurred when Rudiger was near the away section - with Spurs fans becoming frustrated by the 2-0 deficit.

Rudiger alerted referee Paul Tierney to the incident but he decided not to take the matter further.

In reaction to the incident Thomas Tuchel said: “If it's a new trend we should act together to stop it as soon as possible to protect the environment of this game and the atmosphere that's absolutely unique in England.

“I love to have the fans close to the pitch.

“Not behind fences and not behind nets. It's a brilliant atmosphere.
