Azpilicueta’s Reaction To Chelsea’s Goal Shows Why He's A True Captain
The 29-year-old Spanish defender couldn’t hold back his excitement when his side scored, especially after their defeat to Manchester City in the EFL Cup final on Sunday.
Check it out below.
Of course, fans have expressed their delight at the captain’s attitude on social media.
“That’s why he’s the captain. Maybe not a leader in the same way as [John] Terry, but his loyalty and love for the club is huge,” one Twitter user wrote.
Another tweeted: “What a man.”
A third said: “The joy and the love that he has for the club… that’s why he is [the] captain.”
A fourth added: “Makes me so happy!”
Pedro opened the scoring for Chelsea in the second half, with Kieran Trippier’s own goal allowing Maurizio Sarri’s men to seal a 2-0 victory at Stamford Bridge.
Of course, a lot of the attention came ahead of the match surrounding Kepa Arrizabalaga, especially after his refusal to come off in the EFL Cup final.
As many fans had expected, the Chelsea boss made the decision to drop the 24-year-old Spaniard in favour of Willy Caballero.
