Antonio Rudiger refuses Pogba’s claim
Defender Antonio Rudiger has denied having ‘nibbled’ on Paul Pogba. He was at the centre of controversy when Paul Pogba said that Rudiger tried to bite him in the European Championship match.
“I shouldn’t go like that with my mouth to his back — no question — it looks unfortunate,” Rüdiger said Wednesday.
“Paul and I spoke very amicably after the final whistle, and he confirmed to me and then again in an interview that it wasn’t a bite like one or other outsiders said at first,” he added.
