Cesar Azpilicueta recently signed a new contract, tying him at Chelsea till 2020. He just made his 200th appearance for Chelsea in the last game against West Brom, and speaking about that, the Spaniard revealed he has improved over the years since he came to Chelsea.

Azpilicueta said: “It’s a good number, when I arrived I wouldn’t have imagined I would play that many games,” he says. “I just want to keep going because obviously I have a lot more to give. It’s a nice figure to reach but I want to achieve more because I feel I can, I want to win more trophies for this club.

“I’ve improved a lot. When I first came I was a right-back and in the first few months I wasn’t playing too much. There was then a transition where I ended up playing as a left-back for a long time and now I’m playing as part of a three-man central defence.

“I always try to give my best and respond to what the manager wants. Playing in different positions enables you to improve and learn.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
