Azpilicueta admits Chelsea did not give fans 'what they expected'
The skipper hopes that the arrival of Frank Lampard as the new manager will help to build the bridges anew.
Cesar Azpilicueta acknowledged the players' responsibility before the fans who were not always happy with the team's performances last season.
Now, with the new manager (and not just any manager but the legendary Frank Lampard), the captain hopes to turn things around.
“We know fans can make the difference,” said Azpilicueta. “It is true that last season for periods we didn’t give them what they expected. Our level and performances were not good enough and the reason they were not happy with us and negative. We turned it around and got the Europa League at the end.
“You can see that this season all of the fans are very happy and we have the gaffer back at the Bridge. Now we have to give it back by working hard on the pitch, by winning games – which I think is the best way to be even more together and drive in the same way.”
