The Chelsea players are currently enjoying a two weeks break as the Premier League is currently experiencing a much clamoured winter break for the first time.

For Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta, he has revealed that he’s pleased with the break as he’d have quality time to spend with his family. The Blues skipper also admitted that the players will come back fresh for the final phase of the season, and also warned that they must remain mentally focused even while on holiday.

“It’s nice to have a few days to switch off,” Azpilicueta told the official Chelsea website.

“At the top level you need a high level of fitness, but also on the mental side you need to be focused and concentrated. With this break we have the chance to switch off for a few days, and get some fresh air. Then we will come back, do some work, and kick on for the last three or four months of competition with the power of the break behind us.

“They did well to fit it in the middle of the season, which is not easy with the busy schedule. I will have some time with my family, and live without any rush or any travelling. It’s nice to spend time with them. They support me through the year, and at the weekends we are off travelling. For us to spend a nice time together is important.”
