If there should be another name for Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta, it should be Mr. Consistency. The 27-year-old has been one of Chelsea’s best players since he broke into the first team in 2013.
Signed for a meagre sum of £8 million from Marseille with no fanfare or hype, the man Chelsea fans chose to call Dave bought his stardom with sheer hard work, discipline and motivation. He’s never one to be involved in dressing room unrest or have an altercation with the manager. Even when he’s being played out of position, he’s never the type to complain.
The Spain international has played as a left-back, right, wing-back and a centre-back and he has played all like a pro.
He’s loved by his teammates and the likes of Frank Lampard and John Terry have attested that he’s the hardest worker in training.
Azpilicueta has taken his game to another level by showing us skills we didn’t even know he had. He showed amazing step over on the ball in training and decided to take things further with an audacious chip.
