Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger discovers UEFA decision after ‘bite’ on Man Utd’s Paul Pogba


UEFA have decided Antonio Rudiger will face no disciplinary action for his alleged bite on Paul Pogba. The Germany defender appeared to nibble on the back of the Manchester United midfielder, who immediately screamed in pain and shock, at Euro 2020 on Tuesday night.

Replays showed that Rudiger did in fact appear to bite his opposite number, who was furious that the incident went unnoticed.

Pogba pleaded with the officials to take a closer look but they refused to oblige.


Now UEFA have confirmed that they will not open a case over the incident, meaning Rudiger will be available for the second group game against Portugal.

Speaking after the game, the World Cup winner admitted he did not want Rudiger suspended despite feeling the contact from his friend.

In the ITV Studio, Patrick Vieira was adamant that Rudiger was guilty based on Pogba’s immediate reaction.

Vieira said: “When you see the Pogba reaction, he felt like a bite. I do not understand what he was trying to do that.”

Roy Keane then played it down, adding: “I think it was more of a nibble, wasn’t it, than a bite? A silly thing to do.”


Intriguingly, three days prior to the game Rudiger had expressed his desire to get rough with the opposition in order to win by any means necessary.

Rudiger a couple of days ago said: “Of course, they have good forwards, we have to be ready to win the one-on-one challenges.

“Just be disgusting, not always act nice, nice, nice, nice or playfully nice, nice, nice.”


“You have to set your mark against these players.”

Thankfully for Germany, he will be able to continue as Joachim Low’s side look to turn their tournament around with wins over Portugal and Hungary in order to progress to the knockout stages.
