Rudiger claims that racism has won after being booed by Spurs fans

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has claimed that racism has won and that he was made a scapegoat after alleged racists abuses against him in a Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur went unpunished. According to Spurs and the Metropolitan Police, investigations into the incident revealed that there was no evidence of abuse during the game in December.

Rudiger was involved in an incident with Tottenham’s Son Heung-min which saw the latter red-carded after which the Chelsea man indicated that he was subjected to a monkey gesture from the home section of the crowd. However, no evidence has been found to back up the claim.

“Racism has won. The offenders can always come back to the stadium, which shows these people have won,” said Rudiger after the Blues beat Spurs 2-1 on Saturday.

“They never get punished and in the end, I’m the scapegoat. I won’t give up, I’ll never stop raising my voice,” the German defender added.

“I’ll always raise my voice, but in relation to this, I’m alone.

“It’s a disaster. I became a father last Thursday and you start thinking society hasn’t come far enough in fighting racism so my kids will probably suffer as well.

“If nothing changes, if kids don’t get good education and parenting, we’ll lose.”

Regardless, Chelsea boosted their chances of a top-four finish with a 2:1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Olivier Giroud, returning to the starting line-up scored the first goal for the Blues in the first half before Marcos Alonso came up with the second in the second half.
