Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has been ever-present for Chelsea this season and ex-Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer admits Azpilicueta is a manager’s dream.

“He is a guy that is always positive,” Schwarzer told BBC Sport.

“He is a great professional, he works incredibly hard always on and off the pitch, he never complains about anything.

“When I was there, he was in and out of the side and actually didn’t play a lot of games.

“He just waited his time, he never went knocking on the door of the manager and he wasn’t complaining.

“At training every day, he was 100 per cent involved, he was giving everything all the time.

“He’s a manager’s dream. He is a guy that has got so much versatility. He can play in any position across the back and you could probably argue he could play further forward if you needed him to.”
