Chelsea's experienced right-back dreams of lifting the Champions League trophy as he has reached the 400-appearance mark
has been an excellent servant toChelsea
throughout his career with the Blue shirt. Current Captain of Chelsea has won everything with the club except the Champions League and apparently, he is aiming for the biggest European trophies as he reaches his 400th appearance for the club.
The Blues captain told the club’s official website, with Frank Lampard’s side due to face Atletico Madrid in the last-16:
“It’s the biggest trophy, and being a Chelsea player you have the biggest ambition for trophies.
“That’s one that I would like to achieve. We know it’s a new competition that starts in February, seven games, and every detail counts. We have to learn from the Bayern Munich games last season, make it right and hopefully go as far as possible.”
Azpilicueta is an experienced player at the moment but he still has to fight the latest Chelsea’s academy product, Reece James who has performed extraordinarily well as a right-back.
He added on becoming Blues captain and a stalwart at Stamford Bridge: “
You couldn’t imagine it then. When you first sign, you see such great players who have won the Champions League, you just want to be part of it and win trophies. I won trophies with Marseille but this was a step forward.
“I try to improve. I always analyse my game, and am sometimes harsh on myself. As a perfectionist you always want more. To be the captain now, I’m really proud, but if you had asked me that back in the day, it would have been difficult to predict.”
