Cape Town - Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger says he is determined to win titles with the Blues, whether or not manager Antonio Conte is at the helm.
The Germany international praised Conte for what he achieved in his first two seasons at Stamford Bridge. The Italian tactician took over after Chelsea finished 10th in the 2015/16 season and won the Premier League in his first campaign, before claiming the FA Cup this past season.
Conte looks set to leave the west London outfit, with former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri reportedly in line to replace him, but Rudiger doesn't mind who is in charge as long as the club can keep winning trophies.
"I think everyone knows [Conte] is a very good coach, tactically very good," Rudiger told reporters at a press conference for the Germany national team ahead of the World Cup.
"In his first year, he won the league. In his second year, he won the FA Cup. He has shown he is a coach who can win titles.
"This is what I'm about. I want to win titles. If he stays or if he goes, it's the same situation."
Rudiger joined Chelsea from AS Roma in July 2017 and claimed an FA Cup winners' medal in his first season at the club.
