Best in the league? Conte says ‘This Chelsea player is so good, he will play as a Goalkeeper if I asked him to’

ANTONIO CONTE has hailed Chelsea star Cesar Azpilicueta’s versatility.

Azpilicueta opened his Premier League account with a goal in the 4-3 win over Watford last night.

The Spain international has played every game for the Blues this season.

And Conte thinks Azpilicueta would play in goal if asked to.

“It is a massive season for him. He has played in a fantastic way and when you have this type of player it is great for the club,” Conte said.

“If I ask him to go and put on the gloves and to play in goal he is ready.

“He is a model footballer and he can play in different roles.

“When you have this type of player it is great for the coach.

“He played in wing-back, scored one goal and could have scored more. He is having an amazing season.”
