Cesar Azpilicueta was part of Spain's 5-0 demolition of Slovakia as his team go into the knockout stages of the Euros and his week seems to be getting better with his club manager showering him with the highest praise.

"He’s a fantastic captain and a fantastic sportsman," Tuchel told Chelsea's official wesbite.

"He is everything Chelsea means in my point of view – he’s humble, he’s a fighter, he thinks constantly about winning and he does everything to be in shape every three days."

Azpilicueta appeared in 43 games for the Blues during their 2020/21 campaign and was one of the most important players on the pitch for them following Tuchel's arrival.

His leadership was instrumental to Chelsea winning the Champions League and Dave will likely feature heavily again as the Blues aim to win the Premier League next season.
