Chelsea were crowned Champions League champion after beating Manchester City in the grand final and the Blues get the second Orejona from their showcases. This 2020-21 season the English side left with Frank Lampard on the bench, but Thomas Tuchel replaced him at the end of January.
“You have to admit that Frank did his job, we did a good first phase and without him we wouldn’t be here. Since Thomas came we have recovered that defensive solidity “, said César Azpilicueta.
The captain of the Blues became the first Spaniard to lift the Champions League with the genet of a team of another nationality. Add that “We have suffered at times, it was complicated. At times we played well and for others it was not our best game, but we did not make mistakes so that they conceded a goal “.
Complements that “I am very happy and proud of the team. The work of the people above is spectacular; The work of the team, the energy of those who have not been lucky enough to play is incredible, they made the difference. Only a few of us were lucky enough to be on the pitch, but it is what makes a winning group “.
On the other hand, he had praise for his teammate Kai Havertz, who goes down in history as the author of the goal that gave Chelsea the Champions League 2020-21.
“He deserves it. For this season, for his mentality, for his teamwork, for how he has left everything on the field. (…) I came here in 2012, after they won the Champions League. I wanted to repeat that and this is incredible. My family is here to see it “, he sentenced.
