In episode one of Certified Chelsea, Cesar Azpilicueta tells us about the teammate he was closest to and shared a message for all our Indian Blues.
Certified Chelsea is a monthly show produced exclusively for Indian Blues on Star Sports & Hotstar, featuring Anant Tyagi as the host. In each episode, Anant interviews members of a supporters’ club and a men's first-team player to uncover unique stories about all things Chelsea.
In the segment ‘Certified Chelsea Chats’, Sharang, a fan from Hyderabad, sent in a question asking Cesar what it was like to captain the club.
‘It’s something I’m really proud of.
‘I have felt loved and welcomed since the first day I signed for Chelsea. Every day I try to lead by example and put in maximum effort.’
Another Indian Blue, Vipul from Jaipur, asked Cesar which teammate is his best friend.
‘My best teammate was Eden Hazard because we arrived at the same time from France.
‘We lived very close to each other and we spoke French. Our kids were in the same school.’
Before signing off, Anant asked our captain if he had a special message for all our Indian blues.
‘Thank you for the support. We are very grateful, especially to Indian fans. We know they are behind us.
