Chelsea legend and England’s most capped left-back Ashley Cole admits he feels privileged to have lost his Chelsea place to Cesar Azpilicueta.
Cole also revealed the way Azpilicueta trains, recovers and gets back into position makes him unstoppable.
Cole told Sky Sports: “I feel privileged he (Azpilicueta) took my position. You see how he trains, how he recovers and gets back in position. He’s unstoppable now, especially as he’s got that extra protection with David Luiz next to him.
“He’s strong, doesn’t want to be passed in one-one situations and if you have that mentality, you’ll be tough to play against.”
