Cesar Azpilicueta Confirmed As A Chelsea Legend After Champions League Heroics
Cesar Azpilicueta has lifted his first Champions League title as a player with Chelsea on Saturday, with the Spaniard playing a big role in the victorious campaign.
Azpilicueta was a proud captain as he lifted the Champions League trophy aloft after Chelsea’s win over Manchester City on Saturday.
The feat saw him become the first-ever Spaniard to captain a non-Spanish side to a Champions League title win.
Cesar Azpilicueta put in a fearless performance vs the Citizens – capping off an amazing Champions League campaign in style. Hence, his impressive work has gained him a lot of praise from Chelsea fans all over.
Below are the reactions of Chelsea fans across different platforms on how Cesar Azpilicueta has cemented his legendary status at Chelsea;
Dev-man: “£7m. Unreal. For all the money we have spent on and off, we’ve got to say this is up there with some of the best money we’ve spent. If not ever. Ivanovic was money well spent £9m at the time. Who else falls into this category? Kante feels like an absolute steal at £33m or whatever he was. Mendy feels like money well spent too. But not on bargain levels like Azpi.”
Ambarishawala: “Absolute Chelsea legend. His name should be taken with the same respect as that of Terry Drogba Cech or Frank.”
Ohhiitsmark: “You will never, ever find any player who is as great, determined, and willing to give it their all be overlooked by both the league he plays in and his own country. Dave is one of a kind and to me, a legend at this club. Happy to have him as a Blue all this time.”
Uknown_Celebrity: “I think this win pushes Dave closer to top 10 legends of Chelsea territory. His road with us is, of course, not finished yet.”
EdinburghBlue: “He is firmly up there with Frank, JT, Drogs for what he’s done for us. He’s been such an incredible servant and player, cemented himself as even more of a legend after tonight. He’s taken over the mantle of Mr. Chelsea fantastically, he really epitomizes everything good about our club.”
BigBlue: “People questioning his leadership skills, myself included at times, but he really does lead by example. A model professional, who has now won the lot, whilst playing all across the defence. He will likely end up at at least number 7 for all-time appearances. For me, along with Kante, last night propelled him to legendary status.”
IceCoolguy22: “Put his body on the line, never doubted he’s going to quit after that knee injury, and the man knows how to party! We are fortunate to have some great defenders this century, but he has to be very close to the top of that list.”
