Cesar Azpilicueta Admits Experience Helps Decision Making After 455th Chelsea Appearance

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has stated that his experience helps with his decision making after his 455th appearance for the club.

Speaking to Chelsea's Fifth Stand App, Azpilicueta discussed his experience and decision making.


He said: "Experience helps you to sometimes make better decisions. When I arrived, it was my first time in England. I had to change countries, learn a new language and adapt to new coaches and team-mates."

The 32-year-old joined Chelsea from Marseille in 2012, and has since made 454 appearances in all competitions.

The Spanish international is asking for a new two year deal at Chelsea, as well as the option to extend it for a further 12 months if he is to stay at Stamford Bridge.

Barcelona have the been the club most notably linked with the defender, and are also believed to be interested in Azpilicueta's fellow teammates Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.
