Cesar Azpilicueta on Chelsea winning Club World Cup
Elsewhere, fellow Chelsea defender Cezar Azpilicueta spoke to the press on Tuesday.
When doing so, the Spaniard was asked how motivated he is to win the only trophy he has not won at Chelsea, to which the Spaniard stated: “I am very motivated. Losing that one in 2012 hurt a lot and this is the only competition the club hasn’t won, not myself.
“To win it for the first time for the club is huge. We have to give everything we have on the pitch. It has great meaning for everybody, the fans, and we are representing Europe.
“We have to validate how difficult it is. All the journeys we’ve had to make it here, we have to give everything.
“First tomorrow and go step by step. It’s going to be difficult but when you have one chance in this tournament as we have, you have to make the most of it and hopefully take it.”
