Conte: Azpilicueta Is One Of The World’s Best Centre-Backs

share on:

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte is full of praise for Cesar Azpilicueta, who he says is one of the best centre-backs in the world.

Azpilicueta played every minute for Chelsea last season, as they won the Premier League and has become a regular fixture in the Chelsea back three.

The 28-year-old has been a regular for Chelsea since he joined in 2012 and Conte was full of praise for him, after he found the net in the 6-0 thumping of Qarabag.

“Last season Azpi was one of the most important players for us,” the Italian said.

“In this position as a central defender he is one of the best in the world. He is very good with and without the ball.

“He’s a fantastic guy, he’s always positive, and during the training sessions he works in a fantastic way.

“For a coach to have him is a dream.”

Chelsea have won three of their opening four Premier League games and host Arsenal on Sunday.
