Conte: Azpilicueta would be ready to play in goal if I asked him

  |   Football / ISL

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has named Cesar Azpilicueta a model footballer, insisting that the Spaniard's professionalism is such that he would gladly pull on gloves and play in goal for the club if he were asked.

Azpilicueta has lined up as part of the Blues' back three for most of the season.

“It’s been a massive season for him,” Conte told the press after the game. “Azpi played in a fantastic way. When you have this type of player it’s great for the coach. If I ask him to go and put on the gloves and stay in goal he’s ready.

“He’s a model footballer and able to play in different roles. Today he played as a wing-back, he scored one goal and could have had two or three. He’s having an amazing season.”
