Cesar Azpilicueta asks fans for forgiveness after meek Etihad afternoon
- Azpilicueta struggles to explain the 6-0 rout dealt by City.
- He knew it would be tough but still wonders why it proved to be so tough.
- He apologises to every Blue.
Cesar Azpilicueta had an afternoon to forget and never remember as Chelsea slumped to a draconian 6-0 defeat against Manchester City on Sunday. That was one when analysing the game looking for positives was not needed.
Azpilicueta spoke after the game at Etihad: ''It’s difficult to find the words to describe my feeling after the game. It is one of the worst nights in my career. It’s very frustrating, it’s very disappointing. We have lost big games in the first minutes and we are conceding a lot of goals. We cannot accept that.
''When you lose 6-0 everyone has to accept they didn’t play well, we made errors that in big games like this you cannot make. We knew we had one of the best teams in front of us, and we knew it would be tough.
''When we won against them at Stamford Bridge (2-0) it was because we played a very good game all together. This time it was not the case. To lose in this way is very disappointing. The only thing I can say to the fans is sorry, because it’s not acceptable, and I feel sorry for all of them.''
Chelsea go again this week against Malmo in the Europa League before taking on Manchester United in the FA Cup.
