Certified Chelsea | Zouma and Rudiger’s Friendship

Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger might be teammates on the field, but the pair are best friends off it - as seen on Certified Chelsea.

Certified Chelsea is a monthly show produced exclusively for Indian Blues on Star Sports & Hotstar, featuring Anant Tyagi as the host. In each episode, Anant interviews members of a supporters' club and a first-team player to uncover unique stories about all things Chelsea.

In episode three, a fan from Kolkata sent in a question asking Kurt Zouma which teammate had the best taste in music; to which Zouma immediately responded. 

‘Antonio Rudiger. He is the dressing room DJ.’

A couple of months later, Anant got the chance to interview Antonio Rudiger on episode 5 and seized the opportunity to ask Antonio about his friendship with Zouma.

After letting Antonio know that Zouma had described him as the ‘the dressing room DJ’, Anant asked if his teammates had any hidden talents that fans weren’t aware of.

‘Zouma could be a very good comedian. 

‘If he was a comedian, I would always watch his shows. 

‘For me, he’s one of the funniest guys I have known in football.’

Episodes three and five of Certified Chelsea perfectly encapsulate the close bond that Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger share, not just on the field, but also off it. Safe to say, there’s never a dull moment when these two are around!
