And when asked which of his Germany colleagues have that trait within them, Leno namechecked Timo Werner and Rudiger, along with Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich and Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.
‘I immediately think of Joshua Kimmich because he’s a calf bite,’ the goalkeeper told Sport1.
‘Ilkay Gündogan is also a brutal player. He may not interfere, but he plays very intelligently.
‘Timo Werner is also a disgusting player because he always goes behind the chain and looks for the rooms there.’
When it came to Rudiger, Leno revealed that Arsenal players are in agreement that the centre-back is a tricky opponent.
‘Antonio Rudiger is also a good example: Everyone at Arsenal has said that it is extremely bitter and difficult to play against him,’ he added.
‘Such players are good for a team and hurt the opponent.’
