The German twisted the nipple of Atletico forward Alvaro Morata in the second half of the Spanish Super Cup semifinals, held in Al -Awwal Stadium in Riyadh. Interestingly, the two previously played together for 18 months at Chelsea.
But that didn't stop Morata from complaining about Rudiger's touchy-feely nipple pinch. Morata immediately pushed back and looked for a red card. But nipple twisters are not a cardable offense!
Quirky Rudiger was having a strange game even before the nipple cripple incident.
He'd opened the scoring for Real Madrid in the 20th minute, followed by an own goal in the 78th minute. Luckily, Los Blancos still won the match in extra time and will face Barcelona in a bonus El Clasico match in the Spanish Super Cup final on Sunday.
This isn't the first time Rudiger unleashed the dark arts on this opponent. He's always trying to get into his opponent's heads. These are some incidents from the Chelsea days.
He seems to have advanced his weird antics at Real Madrid, topping it off with the latest nipple twister.
Stay tuned for the next Rudiger oddball pitch behavior!
