A peculiar line-up from the Blues defender…
Chelsea left-back Cesar Azpilicueta was asked to pick his dream five-aside team, and the Spaniard, who has been a pivotal player for Jose Mourinho’s Premier League leading side, strangely named two Blues goalkeepers in his line-up!
“Wow, I don’t know who to pick,” the defender told Chelsea’s official website. “Firstly, I apologise to any of my old team-mates if I missed you out, but it was so hard just picking five.
“I’ve played with some great goalkeepers. I don’t know, there are too many to choose from!
“Can I pick two goalkeepers? Well, it is my team! I’m going for Petr and Thibaut.
“I’m not going to pick myself, so the defender in my side is going to be Nacho Monreal from Arsenal. He is my good friend, we know each other from Osasuna and he is a good competitor.
“My first attacking player is Eden Hazard. It’s for obvious reasons.
“My striker will be Diego Costa. I know he’s going to compete, be strong. I think we are going to have a good team with these players.”
Judging by the 25-year-old’s five-aside team-sheet, he has a bit to learn if he seeks a job in football management!
