Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has taken to Twitter to share his reaction to his team's elimination from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid. While he stated that the elimination was "frustrating," he also expressed pride in the "team's mentality."

The Blues were knocked out of the competition at the quarter-final stage in the most extraordinary of circumstances. They trailed 3-1 from the first leg at Stamford Bridge last week before coming into the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday. Mason Mount, Rudiger, and Timo Werner scored to make it 3-0 on the night, with the aggregate score being 4-3 in Chelsea's favor.

However, Rodrygo then scored from a stunning Luka Modric pass to level the aggregate scores. The match went into extra time, and Karim Benzema scored yet another goal to seal the tie. After the match, Rudiger tweeted:

"... a frustrating #ucl knockout for us... but what an incredible fight over 120 minutes. So proud of the team's mentality #Hustle #AlwaysBelieve "


The Blues will now have to focus their attention on the FA Cup semi-final against Crystal Palace on Sunday at Wembley Stadium. Los Blancos , meanwhile, will travel to face Sevilla in La Liga on Sunday.
