He also sent each child a Chelsea shirt with his name on the back.

Antonio Rudiger has discussed his African heritage, growing up as the son of refugees in Germany and how that upbringing made him determined to give back to the community, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Rudiger stated he was born and raised in the German capital Berlin and represents the country of his birth at international level, but has never forgotten his African roots and is proud of his dual heritage.

Furthermore, he has also revealed it was the influence of his parents, who have since returned to live in Sierra Leone, along with his experiences growing up in one of Berlin’s toughest neighbourhoods, which inspired him to start his own charitable foundation.

“Even though I was born and raised in Germany, I also have to recognise there’s another country that’s part of me, so 100 per cent I’m very proud of that”

“Thanks so much to BigShoe to help these children in need in my 2nd home in Sierra Leone. This is what really matters in life to see them smiling again. Together we made it possible to give 11 kids a better life again – May God protect and bless them all”.
