Germany and Real Madrid defender, Antonio Rudiger has arrived in Ghana for vacation after a long season with the Spanish giants.

In photos shared on social media, Rudiger was spotted with his friends as they arrived at their hotel following a long trip.

The Germany centre-back endured a tough campaign last season, as he played a backup role for regular starter Eder Militao.

However, his best game of the season was against Manchester City in the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League, where he nullified free-scoring forward Erling Haaland.

His absence from the starting line-up in the second leg in Manchester cost Real Madrid as they suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat.

Rudiger ended the season with the Copa Del Rey trophy after Los Blancos defeated Osasuna in the final, as reported by BBC.

Depay, who has Ghanaian heritage, mostly spends his holidays in the West African country, where he is involved in philanthropic work.
