It's no wonder the Chelsea players would follow César Azpilicueta into war
César Azpilicueta (along with many, many others) clearly appreciated this
Chelsea are the champions of Europe for the second time after Kai Havertz scored the only goal of the game against Manchester City in Porto.
The Germany international kept a cool head when played through by Mason Mount shortly before half-time, rounding Ederson in the City goal before applying the finish.

The goal sealed a happy ending to Havertz's first season as a Chelsea player, having joined from Bayer Leverkusen for £70m last summer.
The 21-year-old has struggled for form and with the long-term effects of Covid in the past year, but delivered the perfect response when asked about his price tag in a post-match interview in Portugal.
Speaking to BT Sport's Des Kelly, Havertz replied: "To be honest, right now I don't give a fuck because we've just won the fucking Champions League..."
The comment was clearly appreciated by César Azpilicueta, who had gatecrashed Havertz's interview, and many of those watching. It was in that moment, as Azpilicueta stormed the interview when you realised just what a brilliant captain he is.
"He deserved it, mentality top and he gave us the champions league. He ran all the time, that's teamwork," roared the Spaniard.
