CESAR Azpilicueta has been named the Chelsea Player of the Season, according to three of the clubs greatest legends, even though N’Golo Kante walked off with all the personal honours….namely the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year awards.
Ron ‘Chopper’ Harris, who still retains the record number of appearances for Chelsea, Bobby Tambling, record goalscorer only recently surpassed by Frank Lampard, and Gary Chivers, all nominated Azpilicueta as the outstanding individual despite the contributions of the likes of Eden Hazard, Diego Costa, Pedro, Willian and double player of the year Kante.
 Azpilicueta  played every minute of every game during the Blues’ Premier League season, and will no doubt play a starring role in the FA Cup Final against Arsenal.
In an exclusive video for ChelseaFan12.com, the original Captain/Leader/Legend, ‘Chopper’ Harris says: “The best two finds of the season have been Moses and Alonso, credit to the manager as they had been wandering around at different clubs but he got them making a big impact, but I’ve got to agree with Chiv.   Azpilicueta is the most consistent.”
Chivers says:  “Azpilicueta is the unsung hero of the team.  He gives you a seven-and-a-half to an eight out of ten in every signal game.

“I recall when Salomon Rondon raced clear but Azpilicueta caught him up and made a fantastic tackle, he has great pace, covers well and has been remarkable as one of those three at the back.”
Tambling says:  “I was going to agree but I couldn’t pronounce his name.”  “Call him ‘Dave’, everyone does”, chipped in Chiv!
Tambling was the special guest in the ‘Chopper & Chiv’ video show which will be a regular feature of the Chelsea scene on ChelseaFan 12. The guys agree that it would be a huge mistake for John Terry to opt for a mid to lower Premier League club because at his age his pace will wain and he will be cruelly exposed.
The exclusive video is of the three Chelsea legends giving their summary of the season with some fascinating observations.
The Three Amigos are promoting the Limited Edition Hardback signed edition of ‘King Conte’ published in two weeks, but pre-orders now being taken of this potential best seller.
