Cesar Azpilicueta has been the only player to feature in every game this season, and even his teammates have revealed how much of a hard worker he is.
The Spain international has revealed that even his wife gets angry with him because of the time he puts in his game, even when he’s on holidays.
Azpilicueta said: “I work on my fitness and take care of myself and am happy to be available for the manager in every game.
“I always learnt that to play well you have to train hard so, every time I go on the training pitch, I try to give my best and to improve.
“Since I was a kid, even in school I gave my best, playing with my friends, 100 per cent sweating, fighting.
“When I was playing any game, even video games, I wanted to win. Now in training, every single exercise I want to win, beat the other players.
“It is something natural and the day I do not have this will be difficult.
“Sometimes, on holiday for a few days, I would rest but I couldn’t sit for long. I had to go to the gym to run. To get myself fit. I need to do something.
“Sometimes my wife would get annoyed and say, ‘Come on, we are on holidays’, but she knows what I am like.”
