Rudiger reveals how Fabregas helped him swap shirt with Messi

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger says he still cherishes the shirt he received from Lionel Messi a couple of years ago when Chelsea and Barcelona met in the Champions league but admits he might not have gotten it had fabregas not intervened.

"I have Lionel Messi’s shirt from when we played Barcelona in the Champions League a couple of years ago. It was a big honour for me to play against a player like him so I just asked him after the game when we shook hands," the Germany international explained to Chelsea's official website.

"I thought for sure he doesn’t want mine but then Cesc Fabregas was nearby and he said ‘give him your shirt, he wants your shirt too!'"
