Jamie Carragher has lavished praise on Cesar Azpilicueta, describing the Chelsea defender as a “manager’s dream”.

The Spaniard has been ever-present in the Chelsea team this season and has earned plenty of praise for his brilliant displays for the west London side.

Azpilicueta has been a consistent performer in the Blues side this term and has started every single one of Chelsea’s 37 games this season.

The defender helped Chelsea be crowned Premier League champions last week thanks to their 1-0 win at West Brom last weekend.

And Liverpool legend Carragher has explained just why he is such a keen admirer of the Spaniard.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Carragher said: “He is a manager’s dream.

“You think of the manager and keeping 25 players happy… they are all different characters, you’ve got to keep them all on side.

“I imagine the manager very rarely speaks to him. He looks that type. He probably trains well. Conte knows what he is going to get – seven or eight out of 10 every week.

“He plays every game. He is never injured. As a manager, you want three or four Azpilicuetas in your squad. He is a throwback.”

Azpilicueta will be hoping to help Chelsea win a domestic double this season, with the Blues set to take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley at the end of the month.
