Antonio Rudiger’s been videoed doing a hilarious prank on Chelsea teammate Trevoh Chalobah during celebrations of winning the Club World Cup final at the weekend.
Chelsea’s TikTok has uploaded a video of the Blues squad celebrating inside the dressing room after beating Brazilian side Palmeiras in the final on Saturday. Thomas Tuchel’s side won 2-1 after extra-time to secure the club prize, with Kai Havertz scoring the decisive goal from the penalty spot in the 117th minute.

Rudiger, who’s so often the mischievous character in these behind-the-scenes videos, is caught slapping topless teammate Chalobah on the back.
However, it seems the story is not over quite yet. 22-year-old Chalobah has jokingly warned on Twitter that revenge is on its way.
Chelsea can’t lose Rudiger
Rudiger’s contract situation will continue to give Chelsea fans sleepless nights until it’s resolved.
The 28-year-old defender’s contract expires at the end of the season, so he’ll be leaving the Bridge in the summer unless something is sorted between the player and club.
First of all, the Blues can’t afford to lose a centre-back who’s been in sensational form for over a year now. The aggressive centre-half dropped another excellent performance in the Club World Cup and is monstrous in the Chelsea backline.
In addition, it’s clear to see what an impact he has in the dressing room. He’s got the perfect blend of seriousness on the pitch with humour off it.

He’s 100 per cent one of the biggest characters within the group, so it could massively dent morale if he walks through the exit doors.
Fabrizio Romano reported last week there is a 50-50 chance regarding whether he stays or leaves Chelsea in the summer.
