Former Liverpool captain hails Chelsea defender as a 'manager's dream'


Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has been labelled as a 'manager's dream' by Liverpool legend and now BT Sport pundit Steven Gerrard.

The Spaniard is now considered amongst the best defenders in the Premier League following his outstanding performances since his arrival back in 2012 from France.

Now the club's vice captain, Azpilicueta has attracted some attention from Gerrard, and as per the Daily Star, the Englishman has spoken highly of the versatile defender: "He’s a manager’s dream.

“He gets in 99 per cent of any team in the world because any manager would want him.

“He’s always available, he’s robust. It seems like he’s so professional as well. He’s a fantastic player."

The 28-year-old has become a fans favourite at Stamford Bridge with his consistent performances for the club.

To have a football legend like Steven Gerrard complimenting you, you have to be doing something right.
