Chelsea signed Cesar Azpilicueta back in 2012 from Marseille, fresh after winning the Champions League.

The Spaniard joined Chelsea with high hopes of winning trophies, and he has so far won everything except the Champions League.

The Chelsea captain has maintained that he’s keen on winning the Champions League with Chelsea.

Azpilicueta told the official Chelsea website: “It’s the biggest trophy, and being a Chelsea player you have the biggest ambition for trophies. That’s one that I would like to achieve. We know it’s a new competition that starts in February, seven games, and every detail counts.

“We have to learn from the Bayern Munich games last season, make it right and hopefully go as far as possible.”

Azpilicueta also can’t believe that he has turned out to be the captain of the team, something he didn’t envisage when he joined the club.

He told the official Chelsea website: “You couldn’t imagine it then. When you first sign, you see such great players who have won the Champions League, you just want to be part of it and win trophies. I won trophies with Marseille but this was a step forward.

“I try to improve. I always analyse my game, and am sometimes harsh on myself. As a perfectionist you always want more. To be the captain now, I’m really proud, but if you had asked me that back in the day, it would have been difficult to predict.”
