Ordinarily, the name Dave is short for David, but that is not the case of our number 28 whose full name is Cesar Azpilicueta.
The Chelsea full back was handed the bizarre name early in his Blues career – due to how difficult it was to pronounce his name.
And the name Dave came out as a nod to the 80’s classic comedy Only Fools and Horses. In the show Trigger calls Rodney Dave as he cannot remember his name.
“Some fans still call me Dave and the team bus driver is called Dave, so we’re two Daves, but team-mates call me Cesar now,” he told the Daily Mail.
The 27-year-old moved to Chelsea from Marseille for £6.5million in 2012 – and has gone on to play 150 Premier League games so far.
